Pain, suffering but a ray of hope for Fiji’s future
Review of State of Suffering: Political Violence and Community Survival in Fiji, by Susanna Trnka
The discourse on Fiji’s embattled political history has often been the domain of historians, political scientists and economists and every now and then, the intellectual monotony is broken by streaks of intellectual freshness, which provide new prisms through which we can visualise the complex socio-political reality of the Fiji society. The book, State of Suffering: Political Violence and Community Survival in Fiji by Auckland University anthropologist Susanna Trnka, does just that.
