A book about the past and present Pacific Islands, wide-ranging in time and space spanning the centuries from the first settlement of the islands until the present day.


"At any rate, this is a book scholars should, and will, appreciate; for is Passages Through Tropical Time is eclectic, it is also complex and rich, a welcome addition to the literature of, as Scarr puts it, the "ocean and its islands". - T. Damon Salesa, University of Michigan
