The New Zealand Wars were a series of conflicts that profoundly shaped the course and direction of our nation’s history. Fought between the Crown and various groups of Māori between and , the wars touched many aspects of life in nineteenth century New Zealand, even in those regions spared actual fighting. The Maori Wars against the British were a product of imperialism, or more specifically, of colonisation. The two more immediate causes were racial antagonism and socio-economic competition, though these may be separated only for the purpose of analysis and exposition, the latter being the material and rational aspect, the former the irrational.

  They’ve never read the classic works of the past like Sinclair’s Origins of the Maori Wars, which came out in the ’50s, and James Cowan’s The New Zealand Wars, which arrived in the ’20s, or Gorst’s The Maori King, which appeared way back in the s, so they don’t realise that historians have never had the balmy view of.   The newspapers of New Zealand have a long history supporting campaigns of the rich or nobility, either Maori or British, and have never practiced an American culture of journalism. A well known NZ paper, The New Zealand Herald, was established during the Maori Wars, and was a Loyalist paper (starting in ) supporting the British Imperials.".

War changed the face of New Zealand in the 19th century. Many thousands of Māori died in intertribal Musket Wars between the s and the s. There were more deaths during the New Zealand Wars of the s to s between some Māori and the Crown, which for many tribes had dire consequences. From the powerful civilizations of Egypt, Mesopotamia, and Indus Valley, to the fearsome yet sophisticated society of the Vikings, the ancient world was a surprising and challenging place. Here we feature some of the most seminal and influential events and people throughout history, that have helped shape the world we know today.
