Editor's Note

Editor's Note This being the first issue of The Contemporary Pacific under my editorship, it is fitting to pay tribute to my predecessors: editors Brij Lal (now at the Australian National University), David Hanlon (History Department, University of Hawai`i), and Geoffrey White (East-West Center and Anthropology Department, University of Hawai`i). I'm particularly grateful to Geoffrey White for his time and attention during the handing-over period. Recently retired are two individuals who were also founders of The Contemporary Pacific: Robert C Kiste, and Linley Chapman, the chair of the journal's editorial board and the managing editor, respectively. Their retirement from the Center for Pacific Islands Studies at the University of Hawai`i--where Kiste worked for twenty-four years and Chapman some fifteen years--can be said to mark the end of an era, and the beginning of a new one. The new line-up of individuals who will carry on the important work that began fourteen years augurs well for the future. Jan Rensel, our new managing editor, brings to this endeavor years of experience as an editor, writer, researcher, and anthropologist. Her knowledge of the Pacific region and her editorial skills are remarkable.

Abstract

This being the first issue of The Contemporary Pacific under my editorship, it is fitting to pay tribute to my predecessors: editors Brij Lal (now at the Australian National University), David Hanlon (History Department, University of Hawai`i), and Geoffrey White (East-West Center and Anthropology Department, University of Hawai`i). I'm particularly grateful to Geoffrey White for his time and attention during the handing-over period. Recently retired are two individuals who were also founders of The Contemporary Pacific: Robert C Kiste, and Linley Chapman, the chair of the journal's editorial board and the managing editor, respectively. Their retirement from the Center for Pacific Islands Studies at the University of Hawai`i--where Kiste worked for twenty-four years and Chapman some fifteen years--can be said to mark the end of an era, and the beginning of a new one. The new line-up of individuals who will carry on the important work that began fourteen years augurs well for the future. Jan Rensel, our new managing editor, brings to this endeavor years of experience as an editor, writer, researcher, and anthropologist. Her knowledge of the Pacific region and her editorial skills are remarkable. Suzanne Falgout, professor of anthropology at University of Hawai`i at West
