The picture Thomas paints of Oceania shows that interactions between indigenous cultures and European influences created entirely new Oceanic identities. 62 illustrations. 304 pp.
PortraitNicholas Thomas is Professor of Anthropology, Goldsmiths College, University of London. He is the author of numerous books, including "Entangled Objects: Exchange, Material Culture, and Colonialism in the Pacific."
Pressestimmen"Thomas makes a statement of major importance on the deep political and intellectual complexities involved in visually and verbally constructing histories and cultures. . . . Sophisticated, original, and compelling."--Don Brenneis, University of California at Santa Cruz
