Abstract

book and media reviews ers but will offer those interested in land tenure, law, and legal pluralism in Oceania much to think on. The numerous exquisite and often breathtaking full-color photographs of Cook Islands material culture and historical contexts in combination with lengthy extracts from primary materials will serve as sources of inspiration to students and a stimulus to future Cook Islands scholarship. Regional libraries will wish to have copies. Profits from the volume will be donated to the Cook Islands Library and Museum Society, a privately funded and volunteer institution, which has worked to preserve and promote Cook Islands material culture since 1963. of the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands (ramsi) in 2003. These observed behaviors and events persuaded me to learn more about the perceptions of ex-militants in the conflict. I also wondered what these ex-militants could relay to an expatriate scholar like Allen who is attempting to make sense of the country's social uprising. More important, I was also eager to learn from the book how this complex Melanesian conflict is perceived under the auspices of greed and grievance. My very first impression was that the book is very well arranged, rendering the lines
