Publisher Fact Sheet
This book is the account of the people of Northern Marianas who exercised their right of self-determination to become U.S. citizens in a self-governing commonwealth under U.S. sovereignty.
Unpaid Annotation
In 1975, after three centuries of colonial rule, the people of the Northern Marianas exercised their right of self-determination to become U.S. citizens in a self-governing commonwealth under U.S. sovereignty. An Honorable Accord is the remarkable account of their tenacious efforts to shape a political future separate from other Micronesian peoples, of the negotiations that produced the Covenant defining the commonwealth relationship, and its eventual approval by the Northern Marianas people and the U.S. Congress.
