Description

Six centuries ago, Polynesian explorers wandered
across a universe in which islands sailed across the
sea and stars to arrive in Aotearoa New Zealand. Four
centuries later, European explorers arrived with maps
and clocks, grids and fences. In this, her most ambitious
book to date, Dame Anne Salmond looks at New Zealand
experience as a hub of cosmo-diversity – a place where
multiple ‘worlds’ collide. Beginning with a fine-grained
inquiry into the early period of encounters between
Māori and Europeans in New Zealand (1769–1840),
Salmond then investigates such clashes and exchanges
in areas of contemporary life – waterways, land, the
sea and people – and asks whether, for anthropologists
and citizens alike, we might still have the real chance to
experiment across worlds.
