Race, speight and the crisis in Fiji
Mishra, V. (2008) Race, speight and the crisis in Fiji. In: Lal, B. and Pretes, M., (eds.) Coup: Reflections on the political crisis in Fiji. ANU E Press, Canberra, ACT, pp. 60-64.
In Fiji one suspects no one really cares about this crucial distinction. On 14 May 1987, Rabuka 19s rhetoric was racial; since 19 May 2000 George Speight 19s has been even more so. I begin my story with race because my Fiji was primarily colonial and racial. By the time I left Fiji for good in 1974 I had seen only a year and a half of post-colonial Fiji.
