Pacific Neighbors is an introduction to the geography, history, and culture of the islands and island groups of Micronesia, Melanesia, and Polynesia. Profusely illustrated with line drawings, maps, and photographs, Pacific Neighbors explains how the islands were formed; how big the islands are; what the climate is like; who the first people to live in the islands were; what life was like before Europeans and Americans found the islands and what changes they brought after they arrived; and what life is like on the islands today (how people make a living, who makes the laws; what problems do the people have). Pacific Neighbors is a highly recommended addition to any Pacific studies reading list or reference book collection. -- Midwest Book Review
