Here is a full inventory of traditional Maori weapons with all the available written information about traditional weapons collected into one concise volume. Maori Weapons provides complete cultural and technical information on the handmade weapons used by Maori, along with photos and line drawings. From the well-known taiaha and mere to the more obscure wahaika and maripi, this is a comprehensive guide that will serve a range of readers. This book does a marvellous job of bringing together all the knowledge that could be gleaned from written sources on Maori weapons as objects of war...Here then is a complete armoury of Maori weapons. - Dr Hirini Melbourne
