Description

Papua New Guinea: People, Politics and History Since 1975 begins with an overview of the country's history until Independence in 1975, and then traces the major themes that have resonated through its first twenty-five years as a nation: corruption, rich resources, political volatility and uncertainty, lawlessness, a troubled border with Indonesia, and the war on Bougainville, which led to the extraordinary engagement of the Sandline mercenaries. Drawing from his vast experience and insight into this troubled country, and using material gathered for the ABC TV documentary 'Paradise Imperfect' Sean Dorney has thoroughly revised and updated his highly acclaimed 1990 portrait of PNG to produce a timely, fascinating and authoritative examination of our nearest neighbour.
