Originally published in 1922, and relatively forward-thinking for its time, this collection of essays addresses the problem of depopulation in Melanesia as a result of white interference and colonialism. The contributors examine various factors in the population decrease, including diseases introduced by colonists and the psychological impact of outside interference. This book will be of value to anyone interested in colonialism or the colonial history of Melanesia.
