Security and Development in the Pacific Islands: Social Resilience in Emerging States

M. Anne Brown, Ed. (Lynne Rienner, 2007)

 

 

Reflecting a growing awareness of the need to integrate security and development agendas in the field of conflict management, the authors of this original volume focus on the case of the Pacific Islands.

In the process, they also reveal the sociopolitical diversity, cultural richness, and social resilience of a little-known region. Their work not only offers insight into the societies discussed, but also speaks to the realities of political community and statebuilding efforts throughout the developing world.
