The Pacific World in the Age of the Americas

The Pacific World

We’re a friendly and respectful group of individuals interested in history in general and the history of the Pacific World and North America specifically. Since our site is mainly about the history of the United States, most of our reading involves the interaction between the United States and the Pacific World, with some special attention to Alaska, Western Canada and Hawaii. The period of time covered is c.1492-1975.

We do not cover the “pre-Colombian” Pacific World and avoid strictly military histories of Pacific conflcts in favor of more holistic narratives of the conflicts.
