and South America, the Pacific islands from Hawaii to Tahiti, and from Japan to New Zealand and Australia) as a distinctive region with a unified history. While religion has played an important role in this history, giving rise to a literature on Protestant and Catholic missions in the region, the study of the LDS Church’s expansion into the Pacific has remained largely outside of the bounds of non-LDS study.

The Pacific basin has been a crucial part of LDS Church history for nearly the entire lifespan of Mormonism.This volume brings the Pacific history of the LDS Church into focus in two ways. First, it explores the range and meanings of the churchs settlement and movement. Second, it suggests contrasts, linkages, and parallels between LDS and other missionary activities.
