Bruce Biggs was senior lecturer in Maori Language at Auckland University when he completed this book, which was the first in a series of Maori monographs published by the Polynesian Society. It is sub-titled " An Essay in Reconstruction" and in his preface Biggs wrote that he had received much help from Maori and Europeans who contributed "what they knew of the ways of old," making it possible for him to construct a coherent picture of the marriage aspect of Maori life. His findings are presented in seven chapters. In his introduction to "Maori Marriage" W R Geddes, then Professor of Social Anthropology at Sydney University said Biggs' deep knowledge of Maori language and literature had enabled him to use sources of information "never before used by anthropological writers."
