A New Net Goes Fishing
The origin of this study is followed by a brief survey of histories of the war in the Pacific, and the challenges of research into intimacy and private life. The U.S. government and military-constructed barriers to marriage of servicemen and indigenous women are detailed along with the attitude of colonial administrators and missionaries to such relationships and the resultant children. The social and economic effects of the U.S. occupation are considered in a region where a range of presumptions about race, morality, and sexual behavior abounded and were applied to Pacific peoples.
