Agents of Autonomy examines the way that Māori reorganised and responded to the Crown's determined drive to secure Māori lands. Vincent O'Malley's history discusses in detail the succession of Māori organisations, or 'Native Committees', that formed throughout the nineteenth century and came very close to regaining control of their affairs and their resources.

"An important study of the political struggle of Māori to control their own world throughout the later nineteenth century... It should convince doubters that Māori leaders themselves devoted herculean energies in efforts to lead their people and sustain their mana, demonstrating along the way sophisticated political skills."
