Fischer now has complete, readable texts in an ancient form of Greek. Fischer's most valuable contribution is a detailed history of research on Rongoronga ... and a full catalogue of all known Rongorongo inscriptions. These alone will make this book a must, not only for Polynesian specialists, but for all those interested in non-European scripts. - The Times Higher Education Supplement
