About this book


In the volatile post-Cold War era, the small, vulnerable states of the Pacific Islands region face several challenges to their security and sovereignty. This book focuses on these challenges, as part of an examination of security and defence issues in the region. It considers trends and issues over the last decade, and the uncertain prospects over the next. The book emphasizes political, diplomatic, and military matters, including the role of external powers, but also considers environmental, economic, and resources issues.
