Title: New Guinea on the threshold : aspects of social, political, and economic development
Author(s): Fisk, E. K.
Date published: 1966
Publisher: Canberra : Australian National University Press
Description: New Guinea today is the largest, if not the most populous, non-self-governing territory outside the Communist world. It includes some of the most recently contacted primitive races known to mankind, and its population comprises hundreds of tribal groups whose native languages are mutually unintelligible. The geographical, political, and social fragmentation of the country, its wide range of economic activities, from the most primitive subsistence gathering to the most sophisticated internal air transport system, and the growing political pressures from the outside world, present a fascinating concatenation of problems to those concerned with the future of this land. In this book a group of experts, who have made a special study of Papua and New Guinea, examine the present situation in that Territory from the point of view of their own specialities, and consider what this bodes for the future.
