              How are Pacific lives imagined, written and read? How are they refracted through prisms of process? From legends about culture heroes to biographies of national leaders, from tales of ancestors to stories of contemporary men and women, from lives told of both the famous and the n...ameless, this collection of essays - by historians and anthropologists, Islanders and Island scholars - probes questions of personhood, identity, memory, and time across the sweep of the Pacific, as well as practical issues of research and writing.

The author works primarily within a legal analytical framework employing a multifaceted approach to address the challenge of making Western theories relevant to the concrete and... normative contexts of the Pacific peoples, and to accommodate PAcific values, ideologies, structures and practices within the modern discourse on law.

              Pillars and Shadows: Statebuilding as peacebuilding in Solomon Islands (Paperback)

              This volume of the Peacebuilding Compared Project examines the sources of the armed conflict and coup in the Solomon Islands before and after the turn of the millennium. The Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands (RAMSI) has been an intensive peacekeeping operation, conce...ntrating on building 'core pillars' of the modern state. It did not take adequate notice of a variety of shadow sources of power in the Solomon Islands, for example logging and business interests, that continue to undermine the state's democratic foundations. At first RAMSI's statebuilding was neither very responsive to local voices nor to root causes of the conflict, but it slowly changed tack to a more responsive form of peacebuilding. The craft of peace as learned in the Solomon Islands is about enabling spaces for dialogue that define where the mission should pull back to allow local actors to expand the horizons of their peacebuilding ambition.

              To read this evocative book is to be thrust into a Fiji that has, for the moment, been snuffed out by military might: a Fiji of political parties, parliamentary politics, elections, manifestoes, campaigns, democractic defence of interests, party manoeuvres, and constitutional pro...tection of rights and freedoms. It is a comprehensive and eloquent re-telling of the story of Fiji politics from independence in 1970 to 1999 through the perspective of Fiji's greatest living statesman, Jai Ram Reddy, by one of the world's most distinguished scholars of its history and politics. Jai Ram Reddy was the most significant Indo-Fijian leader of postcolonial Fiji until his departure from the political stage in 1999, just as Ad Patel had been the greatest leader of the Indo-Fijian community in colonial Fiji until his death in 1969. Both men form different historical eras, political contexts and experience of politics, espoused a vision for Fiji which failed to materialize in their own time, but which now stands vindicated.

              A "comprehensive report on hard data published these days, especially one so insightfully contextualised by the editors' introductory and concluding chapters. These scholars and the others involved in the work really know their stuff, and it shows. The editors connect the preoccu...pations of Pacific archaeologists with those of their colleagues working in other island regions and on "big questions" of colonisation, migration, interaction and patterns and processes of cultural change in hitherto-uninhabited environments. These sorts of outward-looking, big-picture contextual studies are invaluable, but all too often are missing from locally- and regionally-oriented writing, very much to its detriment. In sum, the work strongly advances our understanding of the early prehistory of Fiji through its well-integrated combination of original research and the reinterpretation of existing knowledge in the context of wider theoretical and historical concerns. In doing so The Early Prehistory of Fiji makes a truly substantial contribution to Pacific and archaeological scholarship. "
