The Federated States of Micronesia’s Engagement with the Outside World
To my wife, Kerry, and our two daughters, Anelita and Jessica Puas. Thank you for your nurturing love and support during my writing of this book. My deep and sincere thanks to Paul D’Arcy and Greg Fry for their guidance, assistance and patience. Without you this book would never have come to fruition.
This book is dedicated to all the people of the Federated States of Micronesia who have taught me about our history and how we have managed through many centuries of colonial turbulence. In the end, we remain in control of ourselves now and into the distant future.
