By David Robie
A comprehensive “hidden stories of the Pacific” media and communication book about many of the region’s major issues of the past two decades such as the Fiji coups, Papua New Guinea’s Bougainville war and resource development crises, nuclear testing and health challenges, environmental degradation and climate change and West Papua.
The author writes with insight and personal experience of all the events covered. It is the first book by the author since his Mekim Nius: South Pacific Media, Politics and Education (published at the University of the South Pacific, 2004).
Australian investigative journalist John Pilger: “This is an extraordinary ‘secret history’ of a vast region of the world of which David Robie has been a rare expert witness. What makes this epic work so timely is that it allows us to understand the Asia-Pacific at a time of renewed Cold War ambitions and dangers.”
