A Hidden Economy: Māori in the Privatised Military Industry

By Maria Bargh

A Hidden Economy: Māori in the Privatised Military Industry

The Māori economy is often defined simply by the contributions of Māori in New Zealand in the areas of farming, fisheries and forestry. This book explores the ways that Māori in the privatised military industry contribute in monetary and non-monetary ways to the Māori economy. Workers in the privatised military industry very rarely, if ever, give interviews about their work or details about their pay. However, this book includes five interviews with Māori who have worked or are still working in the privatised military industry and explores how they articulate themselves as Māori in the industry, giving a glimpse at this secret world and how Māori operate in it.

Product Review

"A Hidden Economy is thoroughly recommended, as much for the Kiwi perspective applied to this phenomenon and the analytical framework developed, as for the stories of the individuals who have left whanau far behind and travelled to the other side of the world to make a dollar, in the best way they know how."Capt Jeremy Seed - Army News
"...ground-level explanations of international affairs that are more lucid than most you will find in mainstream media."Paul Little - North & South
"...a short but powerful book."Aaron Smale - Mana
