A History of the Pacific Islands traces the human history of nearly one-third of the globe over a fifty-thousand year span - taking the islands of Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia from prehistoric culture to the present day through a skilful interpretation of scholarship in the field. Fischer's familiarity with work in archaeology, anthropology as well as in history enriches the text, making this a book with wide appeal for students and general readers.
