This collection of essays, written by the post-independence generation of Papua New Guinea, articulates a vision for the future. It provides an overview of the history of the past twenty-five years, frankly assesses the state-of-the-nation, and addresses its future development. The essays within this volume offer divergent perspectives on the nation-building process across a wide variety of areas. Common to all, however, is the theme of nation building. All contributors see themselves as being part of a process that will ultimately answer the question: "Where to from here?"
