DESCRIPTION

Beyond Distances: Governance, Politics and Deportation in the Mariana Islands from 1870 to 1877 provides insights of everyday life in the 19th century Mariana Islands, using rare documents to bring native Chamorro voices and perspectives. Author Carlos Madrid examines the relationship between significant events in Saipan, Europe, the Philippines and Micronesia, offering a deeper understanding of local events within relevant global contexts. In doing so, this work effectively disrupts common notions of Micronesia as isolated and unaffected by events in the rest of the world.
