Mauri Ora outlines the relevance of culture, identity, and socio-economic factors to health. Mason Durie draws on many years of experience to bring fresh perspectives on Maori health, especially mental health. Few books are able to accurately interpret the health perspectives of indigenous peoples, the viewpoints of clinicians, or the resolve of community leaders. Mauri Ora successfully brings together these many strands, presenting health as ‘the dynamic interaction of people with each other as well as with wider cultural, social, economic, political and physical environments’.
