Ratu Sir Kamisese's thoughtful and entertaining memoir of his personal and political life candidly outlines significant events in the development of Fiji, a plural society for which "The Pacific Way" holds a special and evocative meaning. The phrase inspired his 1970 partnership with the Indian opposition leader to produce a constitution whereby, in his own words, "people of different races, opinions and cultures can live and work together for the good of all, can differ without rancour, govern without malice, and accept responsibility as reasonable people intent on serving the interests of all." After leading Fiji through seventeen years of multiracial harmony, he found it ironic that his defeat in 1987, opposed by an Indian-dominated coalition and a fervid Fijian Nationalist Party, was provoked by his multiracialism. But this same multiracial vision enabled him, after the military coups in 1987, to lead an interim government that restored stability and economic progress. The same man who spent his early years fishing off Fiji's remote rocks and beaches played a valuable role, through his chosen delegates, in the creation of the Law of the Sea Convention, which Fiji was the first nation to sign. He later chaired international meetings of francophone and commonwealth countries in Brussels, and led their negotiations with the European Union which culminated in the Lome Convention and the adoption of preferential trading terms. His leadership was also evident at regional organizations, most notably the Pacific Forum. In addition to his long and distinguished political life, he tells of his chiefly heritage, his early education and medical studies at Otago University, his years at Oxford University, and his career as a colonial administrator. His many sporting achievements make clear that he is a man of many talents

Leadership in Fiji by R. R Nayacakalou( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Dr. Nayacakalou presents a case study in depth of the functional leadership system in one particular village on the island of Kadavu, showing the continuities and changes in the modern context. This leads onto a study of two particular institutions - the Fiji administration and the Methodist Church, both of which he describes as "elaborate bureaucratic organisations." He turns next to urban Fijians and to the emergence of political leadership in urban areas. Conflict, integration and change are the last focus of Dr Nayacakalou's analysis, before he concludes with a lengthy discussion on the practical implications of his study
