No signatures.; xvi, 298 pages. Page dimensions: 210 x 147mm. This book is based on Rory Ewins' doctoral research in Fiji and Tonga in 1993. The book contributes to the on-going debate on the relationship between tradition and politics in the Pacific Islands region. In particular, this work can be seen as something of a dialogue between Fiji and Tonga and the West and among the people of each, rather than as a 'scientific study' by an 'objective' outsider. The title refers to the way in which Fijian and Tongan tradition evolves over time to meet the needs of a changing world, yet remains of central importance to Fijian and Tongan life (and hence politics)." - from blurb on rear cover.
