The Pacific Islands, Africa and the Americas presents the art of the three large areas of the world where vital cultural traditions have flourished for centuries, indeed for millennia, separate from the artistic traditions of the West. The art of these areas is thus highly individual, formed by dynamic, autochthonous societies and informed by their own valued heritage and traditions. Today, it is an art unfamiliar to many Western viewers even though the last hundred years have seen an explosion of interest in these regions. Researchers, artists, travelers, merchants and many others have greatly expanded our awareness of the peoples and cultures of these vast and distant places.

135 illustrations, 133 in full colour, plus a fold up map.
