12. Social Democracy in the Pacific (1983)

Peter Davis (Ed.), Auckland: Benson Ross

In the Pacific region is compressed over a century of industrial and urban development. In parallel with these developments there have emerged a series of political responses that echo the emergence of the early socialist, social democratic and labour movements in Western Europe. This book charts a selection of these developments, documenting their great political and cultural diversity, but also pointing to the evolution of some common responses that seem set to forge a social democratic regime for the Pacific.
