Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary Australian scholar Nicholas Thomas documents and analyzes "rhetorical artifacts" of explorers, missionaries, fiction and travel writers, and the people of the Pacific themselves to demonstrate how Oceanic identities have been represented over time.
