Overview

This compelling narrative recounts the eighteenth and nineteenth century "shipping out" of Pacific Islanders aboard European and American vessels, a kind of "counter-exploring", that echoed the ancient voyages of settlement of their island ancestors. The author weaves numerous local, regional and national accounts into a single narrative that builds to a history of cross-cultural contact. Based on an exhaustive search and summary of primary source material, the work shows that non-Europeans played a dynamic role in the integration of the world economy and the many forms of acculturation that ensued. Chappell explains the significance of "shipping out" as a world history phenomenon and demonstrates that European expansion was a two-sided process involving a variety of participants.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Chappell (history, Univ. of Hawaii) has combed hundreds of records to identify 250 Pacific Islanders, sometimes called "Kanakas," who sailed on Western ships in the 18th and 19th centuries. Sailing by choice or through "blackbirding," Islanders were found in great numbers on American whaling ships and vessels in the China trade. As they moved around the Pacific, sometimes reaching North and South America and even Europe, they suffered physical mistreatment, cultural devastation, and diseases often resulting in death; a few were even exhibited as curiosities, much like circus freaks. Chappell is concerned with the effects on their cultures and on the peoples with whom they came in contact. His work, with extensive notes and bibliography, is a fresh approach, rich in detail but remarkably lively. It deserves a readership beyond the academic community.Harold M.
