This book traces the early history of the study of the Fijian language. The main part of the story begins with the dozen words collected by Cook's naturalist, William Anderson, in 1777, and ends with David Hazlewood's Fijian grammar and dictionary in 1850. The account focuses on how the study of the language advanced, especially through the efforts of several Wesleyan missionaries. Their first ground-breaking innovation was David Cargill's and William Cross's decision in 1835-36 to simplify the writing of what sounded (to English hearers) like consonant clusters, but were actually unit phonemes. This system, elegant in its simplicity, is still criticized by linguistic amateurs, but lauded by its users and by professional linguists.The study analyzes 20 word lists that were gathered during this period, ranging in size from a dozen to several hundred. Collected mainly by explorers, traders, beachcombers, and roving philologists, these annotated lists are valuable especially for their early examples of "Foreigner Talk"-the language style that Fijians used to communicate with outsiders.Finally, the book discusses Hazlewood's linguistic contributions, noting that his analysis of vowel length as an essential alphabetic feature predates similar advances elsewhere in the Pacific (especially in Hawai'i) by nearly a century. This contrast becomes even more dramatic when one compares living conditions in Hawai'i with those in Fiji, where missionaries were forced to endure family illnesses and deaths, natural disasters, internal warfare, and cannibalism.

"We have been reminded time and again by anthropologists of the ideas and ideals of the Enlightenment in which the intellectual inspiration of anthropology is supposed to lie. But anthropology is also rooted in an unequal power encounter between the West and the Third World, which goes back to the emergence of bourgeois Europe, an encounter in which colonialism is merely one historical moment. It is this encounter that gives the West access to cultural and historical information about the societies it has progressively dominated, and thus not only generates a certain kind of universal understanding, but also reenforces the inequalities in capacity between the European and the non-European worlds (and derivatively, between the Europeanized elites and the 'tradtional' masses in the Third World) . . ." – from the Introduction The papers in this book analyze and document ways in which anthropological thinking and practice have been affected by British colonialism. They approach this topic from different points of view and at different levels. Each stands as an original contribution to an argument which is only just beginning.
