“New Guinea: Problems and Prospects is a survey of Papua New Guinea’s geography, people, culture, history, economy and political development up to the eve of self-government and independence, and of its future relations with Australia and its neighbours.
In this second edition of New Guinea the author has updated most of the relevant material and entirely rewritten Chapter 7, which deals with the future – Papua New Guinea’s chances of political stability, the role of Papua New Guinea’s army as an internal law and order force and its place in politics, and the country’s future relations with Australia, Indonesia, Japan and the South Pacific.  He devotes particular attention to demonstrating that Australia will be involved, whether it likes it or not, with Papua New Guinea’s continuing dependence, possibly until the end of the decade, on Australian defence aid.”
