European encounters with Pacific peoples often proved as wrenching to the Europeans as to the natives. This anthology gathers some of the most vivid accounts of these cultural exchanges for the first time, placing the works of well-known figures such as Captain James Cook and Robert Louis Stevenson alongside the writings of lesser-known explorers, missionaries, beachcombers, and literary travelers who roamed the South Seas from the late seventeenth through the late nineteenth centuries. Through their detailed commentary on each piece and their choice of selections, the editors emphasize the mutuality of impact of these colonial encounters and the continuity of Pacific cultures that still have the power to transform visitors today.
Jonathan Lamb is a professor of English at Princeton University. He is the author, most recently, of "The Rhetoric of Suffering" and coeditor of "Voyages and Beaches: Pacific Encounters, 1769-1840." Vanessa Smith is a research fellow at King's College, Cambridge University. She is the author of "Literary Culture and the Pacific: Nineteenth-Century Textual Encounters." Nicholas Thomas is a professor of anthropology at the Australian National University and the director of the Centre for Cross-Cultural Research in Canberra. He is the author of, among others, "Possessions: Indigenous Art/Colonial Culture" and "In Oceania: Visions, Artifacts, Histories," and coauthor of "Bad Colonists: The South Seas Letters of Vernon Lee Walker and Louis Becke."
