Natives and Exotics: World War II and Environment in the Southern Pacific (review)

Natives and Exotics: World War II and Environment in the Southern Pacific (review) book and media reviews Sugita, and Samuel Elbert or Goodenough and Sugita's 1990 supplementary volume for the spelling of important terms and emic concepts used in the book. Key works apparently not consulted that might have strengthened Bautista's fine analysis of mobility in Micronesia include Bruce Larson's 1989 doctoral study of college students from Chuuk as they returned home in search of employment and Alice Oleson's 2007 dissertation on Mortlockese migrants who were relocated to Sokehs on Pohnpei after the devastating typhoon in 1907 that killed over 200 residents on Satowan alone. Bautista's ethnographic research on Chuukese population movement among their various dispersed communities and households is invaluable.

Abstract

book and media reviews Sugita, and Samuel Elbert or Goodenough and Sugita's 1990 supplementary volume for the spelling of important terms and emic concepts used in the book. Key works apparently not consulted that might have strengthened Bautista's fine analysis of mobility in Micronesia include Bruce Larson's 1989 doctoral study of college students from Chuuk as they returned home in search of employment and Alice Oleson's 2007 dissertation on Mortlockese migrants who were relocated to Sokehs on Pohnpei after the devastating typhoon in 1907 that killed over 200 residents on Satowan alone. Bautista's ethnographic research on Chuukese population movement among their various dispersed communities and households is invaluable. It not only documents but also adds to our understanding of the first fifteen years of FSM migration history (1986­2001) under the Compact of Free Association. Those conducting future studies in mobility, migration, and culture change in Micronesia will find this book a useful starting point for the observation of longitudinal developments among the increasing networks of dispersed Micronesian communities in the United States.
