"After Moruroa looks at the history of French colonialism in the Pacific - from the French Revolution to the Matignon Accords in New Caledonia and the end of nuclear testing at Moruroa and Fangataufa atolls.

What is the future for Frances Pacific colonies? As France integrates further with the European Union, can it retain ties with Pacific islands on the other side of the world? How will political changes in New Caledonia and a growing independence movement in French Polynesia impact on Paris?

Nic Maclellan & Jean Cheseaux review the social, cultural, political and environmental impact of France's presence in the region. They document French policy over two centuries, drawing on sources from Europe, Australia and the Pacific.

With France's Grand Design for the Pacific under challenge today, this authoritative study looks at the future for the South Pacificafter Moruroa." - from rear cover.
