In this book, the author focuses particularly on the area of family law, for even the family, that social institution most lauded and valued in the Pacific societies, is profoundly affected by the contents that swirl around it. Sketching the demographic background of the region and its people, and of the laws that govern family law, the author proceeds to examine the ways in which people become members of the family, the intricacies of formalizing the marriage, aspects of support and maintenance of children, the how and why of divorce and its consequences and effects within the family.
