This is a place holder, really. I don't have any good reason to believe this is the book I read, it's just that I don't know which book it was — my notes say simply "February 1993 — Maori — Anderson?".

February 1993 was when I began a three-month visit to New Zealand, and I picked up a good paperback history while I was in Auckland, before heading down to spend the rest of the visit on the South Island.

Among the tidbits I learned was the fact that the Maori were masters of guerrilla warfare long
