Oceanic Encounters: A Prelude – Margaret Jolly and Serge Tcherkézoff
“This volume explores encounters, those encounters between indigenous peoples of the Pacific and foreigners during that longue durée of exploration, colonisation and settlement, from the sixteenth century to the twentieth century. By highlighting the idea of encounter we hope to stress the mutuality inherent in such meetings of bodies, and of minds.”
