"This book contributes to a number of contemporary debates...It is therefore a timely and significant book. Each country is treated in great detail and current political developements are put in their historical context. This provides a useful reference book for students of contemporary Pacific isalnd politics. But this is also a provocative book...There are many imponderables thrown up by this book, which is perhaps one of its most provocative and important aspects...Lawson's book will be an essential part of this debate."
