Additional Information

Pacific Islander Americans constitute one of the United States' least understood ethnic groups. As expected, stereotypes abound: Samoans are good at football; Hawaiians make the best surfers; all Tahitians dance. Although Pacific history, society, and culture have been the subjects of much scholarly research and writing, the lives of Pacific Islanders in the diaspora (particularly in the U.S.) have received far less attention. The contributors to this volume of articles and essays compiled by the Pacific Islander Americans Research Project hope to rectify this oversight.

Pacific Diaspora brings together the individual and community histories of Pacific Island peoples in the U.S. It is designed for use in Pacific and ethnic studies courses, but it will also find an audience among those with a general interest in Pacific Islander Americans.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

I donated my copy to a non-profit that sends books to female prisoners. I think I may re-buy this soon. I love the diversity of topics covered here (history, politics, sociology, women's studies, inter alia). The ethnic diversity is strong here too: there's a good mix on Samoans, Tongans, and Native HI-ians. There may be a chapter on Guam's Chamorros too. I think the chapter on the mahu could have been stronger. I just started grad school again and I already think this book may have many a great reference for me. Highly recommended!
