The History of Policing in New Zealand Volume One Part 2 Policing the Colonial Frontier: The Theory and Practic of Coercive Social and Racial Control in New Zealand 1767-1867

Author(s): Richard S Hill


This volume investigates the provincial police forces through to the establishment of the first centrally coordinated police force, the Armed Constabulary. Also covered are auxiliary forms of policing, including 'official runanga' forces, and policing-related state activities. Throughout the first volume the interwoven mechanisms of coercive social and racial control are placed in their appropriate socio-economic and political contexts. The bewildering variety of types of policing employed by the New Zealand state is given coherence by the author's encompassing interpretation of the nature and function of policing.
