    Emerging from empire? Decolonisation in the Pacific : proceedings of a workshop at the Australian National University, December 1996

    No full text
    These papers grew out of a workshop in the Division of Pacific and Asian History in the Australian National University in December 1996. A December workshop has become a regular mechanism for assembling Pacific historians, their affines and agnates, without the formality of registration, a secretariat - or much of a budget. Accordingly, we owe a great debt to the participants who came largely at their won expense or funded by their own institutions. We owe an equal debt to Maeve O'Collins and Mary Mortimer, for hosting the parties which allow the networking for which these events are best remembered. (First paragraph of Introduction)

    The Defining years: Pacific Islands, 1945-65

    No full text
    This book brings together nine papers from a workshop held at The Australian National University in 2003 that fill a gap in Pacific historiography -- the period from the end of World War II to the advent of decolonization in the 1960s. While the post-war years might not have been as dramatic or colourful as some other periods in Pacific Islands history, they were important in laying the foundation for later developments in the region. These papers cover a wide range of topics, including the practical difficulties of kiap administration in Papua New Guinea, mental health in Fiji, New Zealand-Samoan relations in the 1940s, and the beginnings of elected government in Palau. They offer an alternate view of Pacific Island history in a time of silent but nonetheless significant developments

    Critique [of Cultural Differences in American and Southeast Asian Children\u27s Psychosocial Development by Jacqueline Ulmen Zbaracki]

    Get PDF
    Zbaracki\u27s thought provoking discussion suggests one way in which the Southeast Asian, now American, community can enhance our understanding of a world view entirely different from our own and the ways in which it is taught. Their insistence on keeping the young baby, toddler, and pre-schooler in the company of affectionate adults demonstrates their belief in human beings as integral members of a community (or extended family group) first and foremost. Familial bonds in a foreign setting such as the American Mid-west could be seen as one way to give new born children a sense of an ethnic self esteem, a specific Southeast Asian history, and a degree of protection from the alienation and commercial materialism that afflicts middle class American children at comparable ages
