Oceania in the 21st Century - Black & White
This collection of essays examines the many islands that make up the three geographic regions of Oceania -- Polynesia, Micronesia, and Melanesia. These essays discuss and elaborate upon each island's colonial origins, the role they played (or did not play) in World War II, the impact or influence of the United States on these islands, their current political, social and economic situation, and their outlook for the future. These regional essays are intended to aid in the analysis, synthesis, and evaluation of the student's knowledge of Oceania and its inhabitants. Under the direction and guidance of Dr. Michael Manafo, the Grade 10 Pre-IB American History class at St. John's School on Guam, U.S.A. (class of 2012) believes that these island portraits will ultimately further the student in his or her understanding of Pacific history and contemporary regional affairs.
