Summary
Praise for the first edition:"Tonga is unique among bibliographies in its perception and understanding, and in its affection for Tonga and its people. ... Daly's work stands on exceptionally sound foundations. ... His summaries are excellent, indeed, but Daly writes always with the authority of first-hand knowledge, with a keen eye for the essential, and the ability to interpret and clarify obscurities. ... A trustworthy introduction to Tonga in all its diversity, a splendid point de départ for all, layman or scholar, needing a reliable guide to the essential literature about this remarkable Polynesian kingdom."--Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies"The book is so arranged that it is easy to locate any of the items listed. ... I found myself spending pleasant hours perusing Daly's comments on the different publications.. . . I hope the rumor of a second, revised edition of this bibliography is true." --Journal of the Polynesian SocietyTonga is a fascinating and subtle combination of a traditional Polynesian kingdom--the only one to survive the impact of colonization in the nineteenth century and remain independent--and a thoroughly Christian country. This comprehensive bibliography is a selective guide to the most significant and accessible English-language books, papers, and articles on every aspect of the kingdom's history, culture, arts, politics, environment, and economy. It is a much updated and expanded edition of the original version that was published in 1999 as part of the World Bibliographical Series, with the addition of more than 200 new entries. Each of the approximately 600 described and annotated items is organized under broad subject headings, and indexed by author, title, and subject. In addition--and new to this edition--all known Ph. D. theses, although not annotated, are shown within their appropriate subject categories and indexed. Also new is a section on the most important Tonga-related websites. A general introduction describes the Tongan kingdom, its history and society, and its current situation. Tonga: A New Bibliography will be an invaluable resource for anyone with a serious interest in Tonga and an indispensable volume for academic libraries, reference collections, and policy makers focused on the Pacific islands
