Tongan newspaper publisher and broadcaster Kalafi Moala launched the kingdom’s first independent newspaper Taimi ‘o Tonga in 1989: “This book covers a broad canvas of challenges and problems in search of some solutions. Starting with a chapter dealing with violence in different diasporic settings, he delves into traditional conspiracies dating back to the “Dark Age” of Tuka’aho. Other chapters deal with domestic violence, the monarchy and leadership, Christian spirituality, economic development and globalisation. Kalafi’s final chapter offers hope for the future based on social reconstruction founded on justice, good governance and spiritual leadership.” – From the afterword by professor David Robie
