Presenting the history of the inhabitants of the Pacific Islands
from first colonization until the spread of European colonial rule
in the later 19th century, this volume focuses specifically on
Pacific Islander-European interactions from the perspective of
Pacific Islanders themselves. A number of recorded traditions are
reproduced as well as articles by Pacific Island scholars working
within the academy. The nature of Pacific History as a
sub-discipline is presented through a sample of key articles from
the 1890s until the present that represent the historical evolution
of the field and its multidisciplinary nature. The volume reflects
on how the indigenous inhabitants of the Pacific Islands have a
history as dynamic and complex as that of literate societies, and
one that is more retrievable through multidisciplinary approaches
than often realized.
