Tonga, a group of islands about 1,800 kilometers north of New Zealand, is a fascinating combination of a traditional Polynesian kingdom<-- >the only one to survive the impact of colonialism in the 19th century and remain independent<-->and a thoroughly Christian country with a 19th-century flavor. This guide describes significant writing on all aspects of this island group. Some categories include tourism, language, the traditional drink kava, fisheries, industry, and performance arts. There are also sections on academic journals, encyclopedias and reference works, and general bibliographies. Includes a 20-page introduction, a chronology, and a b&w map. The editor recently left a position as research and publications manager at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. Annotation c.
