The major teme s the failure of vague policies fostering ndvdualism and enterprise to interrupt the contnuities of a vgorousl autonomous social and politcal world maintaning eight of ten Fijians in a relatvel affluent neotradtonal order until World War II, despite the deep vein of discontent and material aspirations manifested most clearly in Apolosi R Nawai's movement, the Viti Company. The epilogue briefl chronicles some of the recent changes n Fijian life which, it is argued, throw into sharper relef the accomplishments of the earlier partnershp between Fijian leaders andBritish officals. Therein lie the historcal antecedents of both the economic problems of the Fijian people and their ascendancy in national political life thrh the first decade of independence. v
