BEYOND THE COLOUR LINE will help you gain a better understanding of how ideas and practices of race and racism came into being. It explores the history of racism, unpacks the theories that led to the idea of white supremacy, and how the notion was used to justify the brutal subjugation of the indigenous populations they sought to dominate and exploit for economic reasons.

Beyond the Colour Line also explores New Zealand’s history of racism. It pulls back the curtain on the British Crown’s betrayal of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, theft of Māori land, and the marginalisation and criminalisation of Māori. It also challenges the notion that the treatment of Māori should be a model for other countries to emulate.

Finally, Beyond the Colour Line is not just about the past; it is about the ‘here and now’ and the future. In the last section of the book, it looks at recent examples of racism and then offers suggestions, drawing on the wisdom of experts, on how to find a positive, meaningful, and lasting way forward.
