Description of this Book

A new book called "Tonga - Land, Sea, People", was launched on July 13 by the Tonga Research Association at its bi-annual conference held this year in Tonga. The book, is a collection of 19 papers of Tongan research that have been presented at earlier conferences and cover a wide range of topics. It was edited by Tangikina Moimoi Steen and Nancy L. Drescher. .At the launch, editor, Dr Steen said that the compilation of the academic book had taken several years to put together and was made possible thanks to the contributions of many people. "Putting an academic book together becomes complicated when the two editors, the copy editor and the book designer are globally located in three countries with different time zones," she said. The Tonga Research Association President Rev Dr 'Asinate Samate said the book is dedicated to the late Prof 'Ilaisa Futa-ki-Ha'angana Helu, who was president of the association and its forerunner the THA from 1995-2005. The Tonga Research Association (TRA) formerly known as the Tonga History Association has provided a forum for scholars interested in Tongan History for the past 20 years and has expanded its interests to include a wide range of fields with a mutual interest in the Tongan people, their lives, and that which affects them - past, present, and future.
