4ème de couv. : "About 86 per cent of the six million people who inhabit the tropical Pacific Islands (excluding Hawaii) live in Melanesia. Not all of them are Melanesians, however, as over half New Caledonia's people are European or Polynesian and almost exactly half of Fiji's people are Indian. Ethnic divisions constitute fundamental political division for those countries. But Melanesian societies are so acutely fragmented by geography and culture (over 1,000 languages are spoken in Melanesia) that ethnicity is major issue throughout. another characteristic is present or recent colonial domination and developing neo-colonial relationship. The westernmost Pacific islands community is Irian Jaya, formerly teh Netherlands colony of West New Guinea, but forcibly taken and retained against teh will of its Melanesian people by Indonesia. In the first chapter, Peter Savage outlines the history of the resistance to Indonesian control. In the second, stephen Pokawin discusses the aftermath of colonialism in Papua New Guinea. Francis Saemala then discribes teh process of achieving independence and the problems now being faced in Solomon Islands. the agonised struggle for independence in Vanuatu is set forth in its sordid detail by Nikenike Vurobaravu, Grace Molisa and Howard Van Trease. The southernmost countries are those where Melanesians are in the minority. For New Caledonia, Yann Célené Uregei describes the nature of French colonial rule and the politics of that (perhaps dying) era. For Fiji Ahmed Ali opens a door onto the politics of the other highly polarised society in the Pacific."
