Completely revised and updated with enhanced readability, James A. Bier's "Reference Map of Oceania" is the most comprehensive Pacific map in existence. Its main map and 52 inset maps of all major parts of the region provide a wealth of information in one source. Principal cities, towns, and villages are shown along with roads, topography, and population figures where available. The main map's Mercator projection is useful for planning routes. Time zones for the Pacific and individual countries are also included. It is the only map that clearly focuses on the political units of Micronesia, Polynesia, and Melanesia, using as its boundaries the 200-mile Extended Economic Zone. With more than 3,400 place names, "Oceania" will be an invaluable reference for everyone interested in or living in the Pacific islands, including teachers, students, historians, anthropologists, businesses, and travelers.

Through it all we find that life is a dance. It is, the author believes, what living is all about-trying to learn the steps to the dance. In this, K.A. Brace's first collection of poetry, To Travel Without a Map, he has tried to make some sense of those steps we must learn and to the dance.
