Editorial Reviews


"As Robie makes clear in this eloquent book, the South Pacific is far from pacific." --Ross Fitzgerald, Sydney Morning Herald, Sept 29, 1990 (Aust)

About the Author

David Robie, author of "Eyes of Fire: The Last Voyage of the Rainbow Warrior", was awarded New Zealand's 1985 Media Peace Prize for his reporting of the voyage and the subsequent sabotage of the Greenpeace vessel.

More About the Author

David T. Robie (1945-) is director of the Pacific Media Centre at AUT University, New Zealand. He was born in Ngaio, Wellington, New Zealand, to Scottish parents. He grew up in Eastbourne, near Wellington and travelled widely through Africa and Europe. After entering the NZ Forest Service, he first worked as a journalist on The Dominion. Dr Robie edited the Sunday Observer, Melbourne, and was an editor on the Rand Daily Mail, South Africa, and Daily Nation, Kenya, before joining Agence France-Presse in Paris in 1974. He later specialised in the South Pacific, becoming foreign editor of the Auckland Star. He was on the bombed environmental ship Rainbow Warrior and one of his books, "Eyes of Fire", tells this story. In the 1990s, he headed the journalism schools at the University of Papua New Guinea and University of the South Pacific.
