About this book

Examines the discovery of the Pacific islands by 18th century European travellers, focussing on the mobilisation of resources and how plants and peoples were depicted and understood. The findings of botany, natural history and anthropology were profoundly shaped by the economic, political, imperial and cultural frameworks within which they were pursued.
