Paperback. Condition: Good. No Jacket. First Edition. Paperback in good condition. Previous owner name inside. Some foxing to page edges and e/p's. Binding tight. `Island Kingdom Strikes Back' is like a Who's Who in Tonga's society and politics in the last fifteen years or so, and chronicles in clear brisk prose the vicissitudes this newspaper and Tongan society went through in that period; the foolish and baseless censorship, the ignorant and heartrending destruction of liberty, the amazing corruption, the abuse of power, the mendacity and profanity of authority. One has to read this publication to believe that all this is standard fare, the reality in this South Pacific island country.
