This is the third volume of a new edition of a classic work, the annotated collection of waiata made by the distinguished Maori leader and scholar Sir Apirana Ngata and previously published in four volumes by the Polynesian Society with English translations of the first three volumes by another great Maori scholar Pei Te Hurinui Jones. This completely redesigned and reset edition, published in association with the Polynesian Society, preserves the integrity of Ngata's text and Jones's translations and their commentary but modernises the typography by the inclusion of macrons. It also includes a CD of waiata drawn from the Archive of Maori and Pacific Music at the University of Auckland, An essential text for anyone studying Maori culture. Part One of the AUP edition, published in 2004, was so successful it was reprinted in 2005. This work: brings back into print a classic work of Maori scholarship, preserving a cultural treasure bringing to a wider audience; Part One was so popular it had to be reprinted within months; it has bilingual text. It is an invaluable resource for scholars, teachers and students of Maori or Polynesian or Pacific traditional music, culture language, literature and tribal history. It includes: new design and layout. It now includes notes from Maori scholars. It is further enhanced, for the first time, by audio CD. The last volume of the set will follow in July 2007.
