    • What Lal and colleagues achieve in this volume is a critically reflexive contribution to the biographical approach in Pacific history. What is distinct here is the contributors' turn of the biographical lens and related frameworks and methods upon themselves. Fourteen sometimes divergent, sometimes intersecting autobiographical inquiries by prominent Pacific historians who collectively played key roles in shaping disciplinary and interdisciplinary conversations about the region’s past and the weight of that past in the present, will interest, intrigue, and often delight readers, particularly those who have studied, worked, or read into these scholars in professional contexts.
