This book is the first in a series of edited collections that will look at Māori research in areas that are critical for Māori and for broader society.
Māori and Social Issues canvases a range of social issues that are significant for a better understanding of the experience and social environment of Māori, and important in that they highlight the need to ensure research-based solutions to these issues. The majority of the chapters deal with social problems. However, this book is not a call to a return of deficit research. Rather it is an opportunity to collectively provide power-centred, Māori-centred perspectives and solutions. [from back cover] The second volume in the series is not yet published.
