The South Pacific : an introduction by R. G Crocombe( Book )

Book Description The South Pacific is about the 28 islands, nations and territories of Polynesia, Melanesia and Micronesia. Indigenous and external influences are creating new and unique arts, cultures, identities, societies, economies and politics of extreme diversity. Future trends are explored, but the main focus is on the present. After 100 years or more of control by mainly European nations, but also Japan and Indonesia, Pacific peoples are working out their destinies in a complex environment in which East Asia plays an escalating role. The book is an important contribution to understanding the Pacific, the Third World and the development debate. Because of the wealth of issues covered, the fascinating truths revealed and the simplicity of style, it will be welcomed by general readers as well as by serious scholars of the Pacific.--Publishers description

"Sir Albert Henry, one of the most colourful and controversial political figures in the South Pacific, was recently toppled from power. A historic verdict by Chief Justice Gaven Donne "sacked" a government for the first time ever in the history of the Commonwealth. The trial confirmed what many had suspected: intrigue, corruption, bribery and nepotism. This is the inside story, told mainly by Cook Islanders themselves. This fascinating political drama includes a chapter by Dr Tom Davis, the new Premier of the Cook Islands, on his relentless struggle to overcome the hegemony of Sir Albert and his family ..."

Politics in Melanesia by University of the South Pacific( Book )

4 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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."
