The small Micronesian island nation of Belau (Palau) for years waged a David and Goliath struggle against the U.S. to prevent the taking of its lands and waters for military bases.  This account tells of Palau's efforts to declare and maintain the world's first nuclear free Constitution, in the context of the Nuclear Free and Independent Pacific movement of the 1980s.  An illustrative tale of indigenous cultural resistance to military imperialism.  

Robert Aldridge is chief researcher for the Pacific Life Research Center and author of many books and papers on U.S. military policy and technologies.
