This volume of studies on the Pacific, most of which relate to the French presence and influence in the region, has been planned as a tribute to the invaluable role John Dunmore has had in advancing historical knowledge of the Pacific and encouraging scholarly interest in this field.

Praise for Pacific Journeys

‘This volume is a handsome presentation in [Dunmore's] honour by colleagues, students and others, some writing in French, others in English, and there is nothing else like it in the whole bibliography of the Pacific. …this book is an intriguing blend of themes and a fine tribute to a dedicated scholar.’ 
—James Ritchie, Waikato Times

‘Altogether, this volume is a worthy tribute to a historian who has done much to explain the naval origins of a French presence in the Pacific and contains much of interest to regional historians.’
—Colin Newbury, Journal of Pacific History
