Rapa Nui - Easter Island: Cultural and Historical Perspectives

 
9783732902651: Rapa Nui - Easter Island: Cultural and Historical Perspectives

Easter Island (or Rapa Nui) has long captivated travellers and explorers since it was first encountered by European voyagers in 1722. The island’s colossal stone carvings (moai) have been the primary attraction, yet these have overshadowed the broader culture of the Rapanui people. This significant edited collection brings together thirteen specialists from eight countries in a series of studies that address the pre-history, history, contemporary society and popular culture of Easter Island. Consideration is given to both the Rapanui and western cultures with topics covered including archaeology, anthropology, linguistics, tourism, literature, comic books and music. This is a multidisciplinary book with subjects ranging from fact to fiction and from Thor Heyerdahl and Katherine Routledge to Indiana Jones and Lara Croft.
