Mark Adams' renowned images document a great Polynesian art tradition. Samoan tattooing has flourished among Samoan migrants in New Zealand, stimulated major New Zealand artists, and inspired tattoo artists and communities worldwide. Through Adams' photography, Tatau tells the story of Sulu'ape Paulo II, the pre-eminent figure of modern Samoan tattooing. Paulo was a brilliantly innovative and often controversial man, who saw tatau as an art of international importance, and who was killed tragically in 1999. Tatau documents his practice, and that of other tufuga ta tatau (tattoo artists), in the contexts of Polynesian tattooing, Samoan migrant communities and New Zealand art. Tatau presents 100 full-colour plates of Adams' powerful and moving images. Documentary by nature, they also ask tough questions of this scene and its history. Accompanying the photographs are two essays and two interviews: Sean Mallon writes on the tufuga, Peter Brunt writes on the photographer, and in interviews with Sean Mallon and Nicholas Thomas, Sulu'ape Paulo II and Mark Adams respectively articulate their own understandings of their practices.

This account of an ethnomusicologist’s experience conducting fieldwork offers a glimpse into the life of New Zealand’s Maori people through his documentation of traditional songs. The audio recordings included span 1958 through 1979, a time when many of the culture’s traditions were fading. Sensitive writing and attention to the challenges of anthropological fieldwork shed light on postcolonialism in New Zealand and its effects on Maori and Polynesian cultures and the continuance of traditional music.

In a time of dynamism and contradiction in Pacific cultural production, a time of 'turning things over' and 'writing from the inside out, ' this far-reaching volume provides a comprehensive set of essays and interviews on the emergent literatures of the New Pacific. With its dynamic combination of important position papers, polemics, and decolonizing critiques by noted authors and of analysis by new and established post-colonial scholars, this volume exposes 'the maze and mix of literatures and cultural identities breaking down and building up across the Pacific Ocean.' This pioneering work will be the definitive resource for anyone researching or teaching Pacific literature and will be invaluable for bringing Pacific culture to readers outside the region
