Uniquely among the nations of the Pacific Islands, Tonga was never subject to European rule. Since its foundation around 1500 BC right to the present day, kingship has survived, and with it many of the ancient ways. Ian Campbell's definitive account of Tongan history, first published in 1992, has been fully revised and updated. It includes three new chapters covering significant information about Tongan prehistory as well as events of the past ten years.
