It is applicable graphic material and a useful theoreti- for students of political ecology and cal overview, allowing them to stand postcolonial studies, and would be a alone as pedagogically useful chap- useful text for upper-level undergrad- ters. One minor concern is the stated uate and graduate courses on those focus on landscapes, history, and subjects. memory. While landscapes certainly jamon halvaksz provoke discussion of history and Macmillan Brown Centre memory, the latter is not uniformly for Pacific Studies, sustained throughout the volume.
