Very proud to have a new chapter out in the new edited volume The Absent Presence of the State in Large-Scale Resource Extraction Projects edited by Nick Bainton and Emilka Skrzypek. This is another great open access book from ANU Press. Nick and Emilka were excellent editors — real role models as I push to improve my own editing. I worked hard for them and took changes in this article, which is a main piece of research for me. It is also outside my usual boundaries since it deal with history, law and order issues, and Enga province as a whole so… I hope others like it!
