Oceania PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Oceania free pdf Oceania: neocolonialism, nukes and bones is a critical appraisal of the destructive consequences of colonialism and later neocolonialism and how they have reshaped and undermined the very essence of Pacific humanity. It provides a rather uncomfortable but justifiably powerful moral message that the perils of Oceania need drawing attention to for the future survival of Pacific peoples and cultures who, isolated from the main centres of global power, are often relegated to the margins of development and progress. Andre Vltchek spent five years living and traveling throughout Oceania. During his journey he interviewed politicians, social-workers, journalists, teachers, doctors and the local inhabitants. He became friends with the great Pacific writer Epeli Hau'ofa who declared him an 'honorary citizen of Oceania,' and he intricately documented the appalling effects Western government policies, corporate strategies and military operations were having on the islands and the peoples of the Pacific.
