Studies in Pacific Worlds
Studies in Pacific Worlds is a series dedicated to the exploration of the vast and complicated region of the Pacific Ocean. This newly emerging and fast-growing area of study investigates a geopolitical space central to the histories of four continents. More dynamic and unwieldy than the histories of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, the history of the Pacific Ocean is governed by complex timelines and littoral connections among nations, peoples, and resources. By examining the many intersections that have shaped the Pacific as both a ‘world’ and a borderlands region, books in the series will reveal the vital significance of this vibrant area.
