Dancing Spirit, Love, and War
Performing the Translocal Realities of Contemporary Fiji
“Skillfully theorized and graciously written, Dancing Spirit, Love, and War explores the multifarious makings, unmakings, and remakings of meke, both in Fiji and across the Pacific to Canada. This is an evocative and complicated study, critical of the power relations it analyzes yet tempered productively by the family ties that at moments cut across and between them.”
