A Short History Of Papua New Guinea

Second Edition

John Dademo Waiko

  • This new edition follows the resilient democracy and the workings of the three arms of government: executive, legislative and judiciary; the free press; and economic changes. The focus is on the livelihood of the rural population, based on subsistence agriculture on customary land, but lacking sufficient modern education and health services. This updated edition also covers diplomatic, trade, investment and aid relationships with other countries and international financial institutions in the last decades of the twentieth century.
  • This is the only general history of the country in a single volume by an indigenous historian.
