Vol. 4 No. 1 (2007)

In another diverse array of writing from New Zealand based social scientists, this issue explores aspects of Maori and Pakeha cultural identity. Topics include a report of the long ranging study on TB in New Zealand by Julie Park and Judith Littleton. We are also pleased to present an exploration of the contradictions of bureaucratised Maori healing in an article by Tony O'Connor as well as concerns over the unintended consequences of legistative protection and prescription of 'traditional' Maori fisheries. More topics include the development of a 'New Zealand' style of funeral services, the possibility of Pakeha use of the idea of Taonga, the lived experience of PKU, intimate relationships between young 'kiwis' and the expression of self identity for diasporic Japanese Americans.
