    The book introduces key texts, thinkers and themes and includes pedagogical features including: A Maori-to-English glossary; Accessible English translations of primary source material; - Teaching notes, and reflections on how the studied material engages with contemporary debates - End-of-chapter discussion questions that can be used in teaching - Comprehensive bibliographies and guided suggestions for further reading.
