Abstract

book and media reviews 635 did not turn to retail trade but instead The author goes too far, however, worked as salary earners in transport when he considers the Javanese—over (as drivers and repairers), following 80 percent of whom live in greater their experience with the US Army, Nouméa—to have integrated into where they had gained a good reputa- the New Caledonian melting pot, or tion for reliability in these fi elds. With more precisely, the Noumean melting freedom of residence, many moved pot. But other than this assertion, the to Nouméa and métissage increased study is precise and well documented, rapidly. But it was the events of the with abundant demographic and 1980s that really brought the Javanese economic data in the text and numer- community onto the local New Cale- ous facsimiles of historical documents donian scene. They were courted by included. It also offers a very relevant the Europeans to support the loyalist analysis of the colonization processes side, and, forgetting the harsh condi- and the integration of a former con- tions of the contract period and seeing tract worker community into the still that they had no place in the Kanak unstable New Caledonian society.
