Abstract

book and media reviews of the more straightforward, historical details of Tahiti both reveal and substantiate Newell's claims. Trading Nature is written in a manner accessible to both academic and general audiences. Newell should be lauded for bringing into conversation two important streams of contemporary Pacific scholarship--the renewed interest in cross-cultural encounters and exchange and the rapidly emerging literature on culture and nature in the Pacific. For scholars already embedded in Pacific studies, Newell draws on familiar arguments about and episodes in early and mid-nineteenth century encounters across the Tahitian beach. At the same time, she offers keen, fresh insights into how many previously well-discussed moments can be viewed through a less familiar, ecologically driven framework. For a general reader, she offers memorable insights into specific ways in which natural and cultural interactions do not stand alone or in contrast to one another but are, rather, co-constituting and ever-present--if overlooked--features of day-to-day encounters. of Tahiti is almost inextricable from the life and work of Paul Gauguin. Yet, as art historian Viviane Fayaud argues in this volume, Gauguin did not single-handedly invent what she calls French Oceanic Orientalism. Rather, he inherited an iconographic tradition with fascinating roots and surprisingly
