Disclosure...I am closely related to the authors and proud of the fact. Jennifer and my father have worked for a very long time on this tome and it is a credit to their combined heroic efforts. It was a long held vision and has been fabulously realised in partnership with Editions Didier Millet.

As the flyleaf advises, "this book will appeal to architects students and armchair tourists - to anyone interested in discovering and learning about the inimitable islands of the South Pacific."

The book is a real treat, visually speaking - colour photographs (taken for the most part by the authors), architectural drawings, maps and artist's impressions grace just about every page.

The book is divided into five parts - The World of Oceania; Settlements in the South Pacific; Places of the South Pacific: Down the Coral Sea to Fiji; Places of the South Pacific: Within the Polynesian Triangle; Faith Across the Southern Ocean and Voices of the South Pacific.

Detailed notes and a magnificent index support the research into a hitherto sadly neglected area.

It will be an enduring and valued legacy which the authors dedicated to all people of the South Pacific.

I commend it to you. ( )
