This book consists of multiple studies of the creation of an "Empire of Love" in the Pacific and the interconnections between culture and imperial power in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It examines the European presence in such contested territories as Tahiti, New Caledonia, and Wallis and Futuna, and encounter and conflict in Panama, Indochina, and Japan. This book is an imaginative addition to the fields of Pacific and colonial history.
