Edited by Chanel Clarke, Fuli Pereira and Nigel Prickett. Roger Neich (1944–2010) was an outstanding New Zealand scholar, whose study of Māori and Pacific arts is celebrated in the eighteen essays contained within Tradition and Change in Māori and Pacific Art. The collection of essays span Roger Neich’s career – from a 1971 article on a Bougainville ancient stone bird carving to a 2005 study on the powaka whakairo form of Māori treasure box. At the heart of the collection stand his studies of Māori art, focusing on wood-carving and figurative painting. Tradition and Change in Māori and Pacific Art acknowledges the contribution Roger Neich made, not only to research and scholarship but to the way the public came to see Māori and Pacific art in new ways. The book will be invaluable to students in anthropology, art history, and Māori and Pacific studies and welcomed by readers in New Zealand who are familiar with Neich’s work. International scholars, museums and collectors will also find this a significant resource for their research archives.
