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.
