Michael King Memorial Lecture: Auckland Writers Festival

Although the New Zealand Wars (1845-1872) have profoundly shaped our country they have been little acknowledged, taught and understood. Historian Vincent O’Malley presents an introduction to the causes, course and consequences of these defining conflicts fought between groups of Māori and the Crown in his book The New Zealand Wars: Ngā Pakanga O Aotearoa. He delivers the 2019 Michael King Lecture.
Historian and founding partner of research consultancy HistoryWorks, Dr Vincent O’Malley is the author of The New Zealand Herald Book of the Year 2016 and Ockham NZ Book Awards 2017 longlisted book The Great War for New Zealand, and new title The New Zealand Wars.
