520 2 "This interdisciplinary collection explores the confluence
of American and British (neo)imperalism in the Pacific, as
represented in various forms of Pacific discourse
including literature, ethnography, film, painting,
autobiography, journalism, and environmental discourse. It
investigates the alliances and rivalries between these two
colonial powers during the crucial transition period of
the early-to-mid twentieth century, also exploring
indigenous Pacific responses to Anglo-American imperialism
during and beyond the decolonization period of the late
twentieth century. While the relationship between Britain
and the US has been analyzed through prominent forms of
economic and cultural exchange between Europe, Africa, and
the Americas, there is to date no sustained study of the
relationship between British and US colonial expansion
into the Pacific, which became central to ideas of
developing European modernity in the late eighteenth
century and has played a pivotal in the history of Anglo-
American colonialism, from the establishment of plantation
economies and settler colonies in the nineteenth century
to various forms of military imperialism during and beyond
the twentieth century. The wide range of discursive and
expressive modes explored in this collection makes for a
rich and multifaceted analysis of representations of, and
responses to, Anglo-American imperialism, and is in
keeping with the current interdisciplinary turn in
postcolonial studies."--Provided by publisher.
