Williams' history - the first book to provide the "bigger picture" of the activities of the Native Land Court - details the dramatically adverse impact it had on the landholdings of Māori hapu.

'Te Kooti Tango Whenua offers a picture of the court in action, with legislative practices that perhaps resulted in the most serious breaches of the Treaty of Waitangi to date, and "points the way to a future less contaminated by hurts arising from injustices of the past.  Williams' study ... adds the vital dimension for understanding the causal connections between government policy, judicial practice and tribal integrity. I commend it not only to the general readership, but also and particularly to Crown and Maori. Here is the "bigger picture".' - Sir Hugh Kawharu, Emeritus Professor of Maori Studies, University of Auckland
