Summary
"Texts and Contexts is concerned with the development of Pacific Islands history as a specialization in its own right. Specifically, this volume examines the foundational texts that pioneered and consolidated the new subdiscipline and served as the building blocks and stepping stone for further developments in the field. The earliest text put under the microscope is Ralph Kuykendall's first volume of The Hawaiian Kingdom (1938) and the most recent is Bernard Smith's Imagining the Pacific (1992). Thirty-three other texts, all of which represent defining points in the development of Pacific Islands historiography, are examined."--BOOK JACKET
