Indigenous women from across the Pacific have a voice in this book. Zohl de Ishtar travelled the Pacific during 1986-87 on behalf of Women Working for a Nuclear Free and Independent Pacific and interviewed women of many nations. Following up with extensive research, Zohl de Ishtar has written an impressive book that gives a voice to the Pacific women and shows what strength there is in the underknown cultures, or nearest neighbours. The nuclear industry, tourism, dumping of waste. Pollution of the oceans all carry a huge price for these islands on the rim of the world, and one the rim of our imaginations. Countries covered are: Hawaii, the Marshall Islands, the Northern Marianas, Guam, Belau, Fiji, Australia, Aotearoa/New Zealand, and Te Ao Maohi/Tahiti Polynesia.
