The South Pacific has long represented the possibilities of a pure space, outside the ambivalences of a ‘developed' world. But the indigenous women of this region often speak of the bitter sweetness of their experiences. Pacific women's multiple engagements with work and with sovereignty politics, as well as with their portrayal in film, poetry and tourism, are at the heart of this book. The contributors address the interesting, ongoing questions of representation and identity, as well as their place in the shifting politics of the contemporary Pacific.
