From the blurb, 'Of the many goods that early European visitors to New Zealand traded with the native Maori, the musket by far had the greatest impact. In pre-Contact Maori society, the intensity of military exchanges between iwi had been moderated by the use of traditional weaponry, limited food resources and the equalising effect of utu. The arrival of the musket and new food sources in the early 19th century undermined this balance of power. Those tribes able to trade with Pakeha rapidly acquired vast military superiority and the mans to conduct lengthy, violent campaigns. Entire districts were depopulated, opening the door for later European settlement. And to the victor went the spoils: the Treaty of Waitangi acknowledged tribal boundaries as they existed in 1840'.
