This is four-part book that seeks to illuminate the issues faced by the Island States in the 21st Century especially in the context of security. It demonstrates the impact of the powerful in an area of the world that is at once remote but subject to global forces ranging from post-war nuclear testing to transnational issues that touch each island group directly in a negative fashion. The book clearly indicates it is now the time for proactive rather than passive security policies and an opportunity for ethnic diversity to be recognized and respected by the large powers.
