Chapter Summary

This is an introductory chapter to Governing New Guinea, to construct a broader and more inclusive picture of the everyday practices of the governing of New Guinea during a period of forty years, 1950-1990, through the temporal and spatial variation and differentiation of the individual contributions. Particular attention is given to the period between 1961 and 1969. It stands out in the personal memory of all indigenous Papuan civil servants interviewed almost as one continuous period of destitution, political insecurity, and anger.

Keywords:anger; destitution; New Guinea; Papuan civil servants; political insecurity
