Praise for the first edition: Tonga is unique among bibliographies in its perception and understanding, and in its affection for Tonga and its people. . . . Daly s work stands on exceptionally sound foundations. . . . His summaries are excellent, indeed, but Daly writes always with the authority of first-hand knowledge, with a keen eye for the essential, and the ability to interpret and clarify obscurities. . . . A trustworthy introduction to Tonga in all its diversity, a splendid point de depart for all, layman or scholar, needing a reliable guide to the essential literature about this remarkable Polynesian kingdom. Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies The book is so arranged that it is easy to locate any of the items listed. . . . I found myself spending pleasant hours perusing Daly s comments on the different publications.. . . I hope the rumor of a second, revised edition of this bibliography is true. Journal of the Polynesian Society Tonga is a fascinating and subtle combination of a traditional Polynesian kingdom the only one to survive the impact of colonization in the nineteenth century and remain independent and a thoroughly Christian country. This comprehensive bibliography is a selective guide to the most significant and accessible English-language books, papers, and articles on every aspect of the kingdom s history, culture, arts, politics, environment, and economy.

Each of the approximately 600 described and annotated items is organized under broad subject headings, and indexed by author, title, and subject. In addition and new to this edition all known Ph.D. theses, although not annotated, are shown within their appropriate subject categories and indexed. Also new is a section on the most important Tonga-related websites. A general introduction describes the Tongan kingdom, its history and society, and its current situation.

The book is a comprehensive, up-to-date, authoritative but readable account of Tongan society from its origins 3000 years ago to the present. It discusses its archaeology, the development of traditional society, and the transition of that society to modernity. Social change, economic development and political change are dominant themes. The island kingdom of Tonga, situated in the South Pacific about a third of the way between New Zealand and Hawai i, was probably the first part of Polynesia to be settled by humans, about 3,000 years ago. Periods of isolation alternated with periods of regular contact with neighbouring island groups while Tongan culture developed its distinctive variant of the Polynesian theme. Modern Tonga was molded by dramatic changes in the nineteenth century during which the population converted to Christianity, and a formal state was established under a written constitution. As a result of benign British supervision, Tonga was the only Pacific archipelago not to be formally controlled by a European power. After two or three generations of tranquil consolidation, late in the twentieth century a vigorous and ambitious king forced his country into a trajectory of economic development and rapid social change, which eventually created a demand for political reform and democratization. Tonga is less isolated, more prosperous and yet seemingly more troubled now than at any time in its history."
