Whale Peoples and Pacific Worlds


Joshua L. Reid concludes that the history of Pacific of whaling has undergone a renaissance as scholars have applied new avenues of analysis and have brought it into conversation with a broader array of historical fields. In addition, Reid provides a comprehensive summary of the volume and adds to the collection by considering the whaling history of the Makah people, located in the northwestern-most point of the present-day contiguous United States, further emphasizing that Pacific worlds were first and foremost Indigenous spaces.
