Kidnapping in the Pacific
amazon.co.uk
"You want a yarn. You shall have one," said a young friend of mine, a midshipman, who had just returned from a four years' cruise in the Pacific. "I am not a good hand at describing what I have seen, but I can narrate better the adventures of others which they have told me: -" We had visited a good many islands in the Pacific, engaged in settling the disputes of the natives or trying to settle them, punishing evil doers, supporting the consuls and missionaries, surveying occasionally hitherto unknown harbours, and endeavouring to make the British flag respected among the dark-skinned inhabitants of those regions. I with another midshipman and a boat's crew had landed on a beautiful island of the Western Pacific to bring off a cargo of cocoa-nuts and breadfruit with which the natives had promised to supply us. Two of our men had straggled off against orders into the interior. While waiting for them we saw the signal made for our return. Unwilling to leave them behind, we ourselves unwisely started off to look for them. The natives gave us to understand that they were a little way ahead, so we pushed on hoping to come up with them and bring them with us.  read more

Clothing the Pacific
amazon.co.uk
During the colonial period, Pacific Islanders' acceptance of clothing was seen by Europeans as a civilizing sign. In reality, Islanders' use of foreign cloth and clothing generally involved translating indigenous preoccupations into new forms of dress. Today, both imported and indigenous cloth feature prominently in Pacific Island exchange, religious practice, clothing, domestic space, public political activity, festivals, and the art and tourist markets. This book sets out to examine the multiple histories of cloth and clothing in the Pacific and to investigate its role in social innovation and resistance from the period of contact to the present day. The past three decades have witnessed the emergence of Pacific fashion stylists as well as cloth producers who, like anthropologists, are acutely aware of how globalization impacts on identity. Typically, their work integrates both Pacific and introduced forms. This book compares these synthetic forms with others that developed in the region during the colonial period, when foreign cloth was typically adapted and incorporated within indigenous textile systems, and shows how cloth is central to the transmission of identity as well as a vehicle for associative thinking. From an analysis of the place of cloth in traditional Tahitian religion, to fashion activism within the diaspora population in New Zealand, Clothing the Pacific provides fascinating insights into the shifting relationship between cloth and social imagination. By tracing the diverse responses to the imposition of dress upon Pacific Islanders, this book profoundly challenges Western assumptions about the place of cloth in culture.  read more

The South Pacific 1942
amazon.co.uk
As World War Two started to envelope the South Pacific, the Japanese, well established at their base at Rabaul located north of the Solomon Islands, invaded Guadalcanal at the south end of the Solomon Island archipelago, and started to construct an airfield for the planned invasion of Australia, and by extension, New Zealand, some 1,200 miles across open water to the south.The U.S. Marine Corps First Division landed at Guadalcanal on June 8, 1942, in a desperate bid to wrest control of the Island, along with the airfield under construction, from the tenacious grip of the fanatical Japanese.The lives of many, friend and foe, were inexorably drawn into the conflict, irrevocably changed in the process:Clinton, a Texan cowboy who joined the Marines after he killed the son of a wealthy Mexican ranchero owner south of the Rio Grande, and later landed at Guadalcanal with The First Division.Brian, an Australian plantation owner at Guadalcanal, who, at the behest of the U.S. Navy, entered the perilous existence of a Coast Watcher spying on Japanese military activities of the nightly forays of the Tokyo Express down the slot.Kathina, daughter of a well-to-do politician in the African country of Mali, who served as a Marine Corps nurse at Guadalcanal where she met Clinton.Yoosef, a Siberian sniper thug, who exercised his profession on any target of opportunity that appeared in the cross hairs of his sniper weapon, whether American, Japanese, Australians British Coast Watchers, island natives, or just about anyone else.Pele, a Mexican who came north to join the Marine Corps, and landed at Guadalcanal with the Corps' First Division.Buford, an Army Air Force B-17 bomber side-gunner shot down by Japanese Zeros over the Island, and who had a brief tragic encounter with Brian as they were pursued by Japanese marines through the jungles of Guadalcanal.The conflict is replete with South Pacific ground, aerial, and sea action involving fighter aircraft, submarines, destroyers, aircraft carriers, and snipers, from numerous countries, including the United States, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain, the Solomon Islands, and many others.  read more
