DESCRIPTION:

Fiji presents a clear, well-organized view of a distant, intriguing, beautiful country undergoing significant change in a part of the world that is often overlooked. Dr. Richard Ulack introduces the reader to the Pacific Island region, then to the location and natural landscape of Fiji. The author describes the spread of different ethnic groups to Fiji, and the establishment and preservation of major cultural traditions of the country. The modern Fijian society, economy, and politics are reviewed. The author concludes the book with a forward-looking assessment of the current and near-future status of Fiji as a member of the world community of nations.
