The book, in dictionary form, provides basic reference material on Micronesia, a region encompassing a vast area of the tropical western Pacific Ocean. Micronesia, from the Greek mikros (small), and nesos (island), is one of the three major geographical regions of the Pacific, or Oceania. It includes the Mariana, Caroline, Marshall, and Gilbert islands and the island nation of Nauru. In all there are 2,106 islands, Guam being the largest and most populous. Intended for interested general readers as well as scholars, the book covers the history, culture, society, geography, and economy of the region, and includes information on prominent individuals, events, and institutions. It is the first book of its type on Micronesia. With maps, tables, and an extensive bibliography.
