Electoral Politics in Papua New Guinea: Studies on the 1977 Elections surveys the economic and political background to the first post-Independence election in Papua New Guinea, analyses the election result which returned Michael Somare as Pangu Party Prime Minister and discusses the party strengths in the new 1977 Parliament. It offers in-depth case studies of a number of individual electorates in each of the four regions of Papua New Guinea and it is an invaluable source on political development at the grass roots as well as the national level, in a crucial year for Papua New G?ineans.
