Full Description

Exploring the Explorersstudy of cross-cultural engagements between the indigenous peoples of the Pacific and Spanish explorers during the early modern period. Bridging disciplines, the book sets out to analyse in detail eight main voyages and their aims and outcomes, looking at the different patterns of contact and the use of gift-giving and bartering as social cement.This fascinating and original study will broaden the investigation of world exploration and Pacific ethnography, as many of the sources from these voyages are scarcely known and have not been translated before. It will also expand an understanding of Spanish and world exploration, developing the history of the Spanish Pacific beyond the long-standing colony of the Philippines.The study will be of particular interest to scholars and students of Early Modern European history as well as anthropologists, ethnographers and those interested in stories of exploration and discovery throughout history. -- .
