In order to understand human history, we must acknowledge that there is a massive diversity out there and we need to consider many different factors to understand why things turned out the way they did.
By taking a multi-disciplinary approach to history, we can better understand complex series of events such as the history of the Pacific. The Pacific is a region that has been poorly treated in many maps, the islands are often not shown at all and even if they are they appear isolated and of little consequence, which is far from the truth. The Pacific is a very interconnected place, and in order to represent the region properly this interconnectedness should be incorporated in the way maps are drawn.
During my PhD here at CHL, I grew dissatisfied with the maps of the region that are commonly used - not only in academia but also in the rest of society. Maps of the Pacific often fail to show the relationship between island groups and the fact that water is not a barrier - but a highway! Focusing in this way stresses the smallness and remoteness of the islands.

The mapping and exploration of the Pacific Ocean, from Classical times through the 19th century, is deftly described in this book, complemented by over images of early maps and prints. No maps were left by the ancient seafarers who sailed east from Asia and were the ocean's true discoverers.
