9780230362697: A History of the Pacific Islands (Palgrave Essential Histories series)

This wide-ranging study of the Pacific Islands provides a dynamic and provocative account of the peopling of the Pacific, and its broad impact on world history. Spanning over 50,000 years of human presence in an area which comprises one-third of our planet – Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia – the narrative follows the development of the region, from New Guinea's earliest settlement to the creation of the modern Pacific states.

Thoroughly revised and updated in light of the most recent scholarship, the second edition includes:
· an overview of the events and developments in the Pacific Islands over the last decade
· coverage of the latest archaeological discoveries
· several new maps
· an updated and expanded bibliography

Steven Roger Fischer's unique text provides a highly accessible and invaluable introduction to the history of an area which is currently emerging as pivotal in international affairs.

appealing and which will make it very useful in a range of undergraduate
courses.' - Hugh Laracy, University of Auckland

Descripción Palgrave Macmillan. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Paperback. 368 pages. Dimensions: 8.4in. x 5.4in. x 0.8in.This wide-ranging study of the Pacific Islands provides a dynamic and provocative account of the peopling of the Pacific, and its broad impact on world history. Spanning nearly 50, 000 years of human presence in an area which comprises one-third of our planet - Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia - the narrative follows the development of the region, from New Guineas earliest settlement to the creation of the modern Pacific states. It also examines the fascinating processes which have contributed to the formation of the hybrid Pacific we know today. A History of the Pacific Islands- traces the extraordinarily varied genealogy of all Pacific peoples, looking at their descent from Papuan tribesmen, Austronesian mariners and foreign colonists- examines the rich inheritance of the Islands as a consequence of succeeding waves of invading, then dominating peoples- explores the effect on the region - as well as the corresponding global implications - of voyaging, whaling, pandemics, colonization, trade, exploitation, war, nuclear testing and nationhoodInformed by the most recent research and scholarship, Steven Roger Fischers unique text provides a comprehensive yet concise overview of the Pacific Islands past. It is a highly accessible and invaluable introduction to the history of an area which is currently emerging as pivotal in international affairs. This item ships from multiple locations.
