When a Maori academic predicted there would be 'civil war' if the Government's seabed and foreshore legislation was passed, a book idea was born. Politically, racially, economically and morally the nation has found itself divided by a variety of issues - Maori property rights, the Treaty 'industry', the Maori Party, prostitution reform, civil unions and 'gay marriage', foreign ownership and immigration, GE versus organics, environmental protection versus economic growth...

Here we test the various doomsday scenarios put forward by vested interests: Will there be bloodshed on the beaches? Is the family under threat from permissiveness and the 'gay agenda'? Is New Zealand now little more than a foreign owned and controlled lifestyle block in the South Pacific? In short, which way are we heading - up or down? Provocative, lively, perceptive and filled with the voices of thinking New Zealanders pondering the biggest question of all: who are we?
