Foreword by Kalafi Moala


“This is an extraordinary ‘secret history’ of a vast region of the world of which David Robie has been a rare expert witness. What makes this epic work so timely is that it allows us to understand the Asia-Pacific at a time of renewed Cold War ambitions and dangers.” – Investigative journalist John Pilger

Professor David Robie, an independent journalist, media campaigner and educator from AUT University’s Pacific Media Centre, distils his lessons from 35 years or working in the Asia-Pacific region. Covering environmental challenges, coups, the nuclear-free and independent Pacific movement and civil rights – as well as many barriers journalists face in the Pacific – his book, Don’t Spoil My Beautiful Face, reveals many of the hidden stories from these island nations.
