Description

Traditionally, Germany has been considered a minor player in Pacific history before World War II: its trade there was more limited than that of other nations, and whereas its European rivals established themselves as imperial forces beginning in the early modern era, Germany did not seriously pursue colonialism until the nineteenth century. Yet thanks to recent advances in the field emphasizing transoceanic networks and cultural encounters, it is now possible to develop a more nuanced understanding of German-Pacific history. The studies gathered here offer fascinating case studies of German commercial, scientific, and imperial activity against the backdrop of the Pacific's overlapping cultural circuits and complex oceanic transits.
