Edited by Maria Bargh (Te Arawa, Ngāti Kea/Ngāti Tuara and Ngāti Awa) Resistance: An Indigenous Response to Neoliberalism is a collection of papers from Māori academics, activists and leaders on the connection between global practices of neoliberalism and the diverse forms of Māori resistance that aim to destablise them. 'Aotearoa is one of the world leaders of neoliberalism. Successive New Zealand governments since 1984 have pursued neoliberal policies with a faith, vehemence and confidence in their success that few other governments appear to possess.'
At a time when ‘capital flows across borders as it has never done before, and multinational companies have bigger budgets than many states have ever had’, this book encourages people to look more closely at Māori views as integral and inspiring in a globalising world.
