"Pacific Romanticism: Tahiti and the European Imagination" by  Alexander H. Bolyanatz (Repost)

"Pacific Romanticism: Tahiti and the European Imagination" by Alexander H. Bolyanatz
Praeger, Greenwood Publishing | 2004 | ISBN: 0897897870 9780897897877 | 148 pages | PDF | 6 MB

This book shows that the overtly promiscuous behavior that the French perceived as hospitality on the part of the Tahitians in 1768 was actually a defensive ploy, and that our contemporary image of sex and sexuality in Pacific Island societies is influenced by a fantasy based on this French misperception. The book takes a very detailed look at traditional Tahitian culture and society and provides a realistic description of what happened on Tahiti when Europeans encountered the people who lived there.
Liberalism, Imperialism, and the Historical Imagination: Nineteenth-Century Visions of a Greater Britain (repost)

Theodore Koditschek, "Liberalism, Imperialism, and the Historical Imagination: Nineteenth-Century Visions of a Greater Britain"
English | ISBN 10: 0521767911 | 2011 | PDF | 368 pages | 3.7 MB

This book examines the ways in which imperial agendas informed the writing of history in nineteenth-century Britain and how historical writing transformed imperial agendas. Using the published writings and personal papers of Walter Scott, J. A. Froude, James Mill, Rammohun Roy, T. B. Macaulay, E. A. Freeman, W. E. Gladstone, and J. R. Seeley among others, Theodore Koditschek sheds new light on the role of the historical imagination in the establishment and legitimation of liberal imperialism.
