The First Taint of Civilization - A History of the Caroline and Marshall Islands in Pre-Colonial Days, 1521-1885

Author(s): Francis X. Hezel


"Hezel writes clearly and with erudition and commands an impressive body of information. His book is a tour de force.... Not only will it be read eagerly by Pacific scholars, but it should find a wide audience among well-educated Micronesians hungry for greater understanding of how their islands have become ensnared in world geopolitics." --Ethnohistory
