HISTORY 701 A & B

Political Development of the Pacific Islands


Description

An examination of political and related social change in the Pacific Islands from annexation to decolonisation. As with most areas of Pacific history, there is a scarcity of basic monographs and general studies on this topic. While, therefore, there is a considerable literature, it is scattered. Much of it is to be found in journal articles. The island groups for which documentation is most readily available are Papua New Guinea, Western Samoa, Nauru and Fiji. Recommended text: K.R. Howe, B. Kiste, B. Lal, Tides of History, Honolulu, 1994.  To complete this course students must enrol in HISTORY 701 A and B.
