What is a New Zealander? How do we understand what makes New Zealand complex and unique? And what creates a sense of belonging and identity? This book illuminates Massey University's BA paper 'Turangawaewae', a programme for thinkers andparticipants in New Zealand and global society. Its chapters follow the sequence of the paper's lectures; as often as possible, cited print texts are reproduced in full, and links to audio and visual material are displayed at key points. Turangawaewae will excite students to read widely and dig more deeply intellectually.
