622 the contemporary pacifi c 19:2 (2007) a number of views of the future of the party arrangements—it is, as most Pacifi c. demonstrate, too much in every case to talk of party “systems”—within anthony van fossen familiar and accepted parameters of Griffi th University the political science literature. This permits comparisons to be made *** not only between one Pacifi c entity’s Political Parties in the Pacifi c Islands, party system and the next but also, edited by Roland Rich with Luke of course, between Pacifi c parties and Hambly and Michael G Morgan. developments as they have evolved Canberra: Pandanus Books, 2006. elsewhere—in Western countries, isbn 1-74076-173-1; xiv + 229 pages, but also in Africa, Asia, and in other maps, tables, glossary, notes, index. island communities (in the Caribbean, a$34.95. for instance). While the title of the book suggests Political parties are a central feature a panoramic coverage of “the Pacifi c of the political process in most states, Islands,” as is often the case with such both democratic and otherwise, and ambitions the fi nal product is some- thus rightly gain considerable atten- what less comprehensive.
