Beyond Distances: Governance, Politics and Deportation in the Mariana Islands from 1870 to 1877 by Carlos Madrid

Beyond Distances provides insights of everyday life in 19th century Mariana Islands and makes superb use of rare documents to bring out native Chamorro voices and perspectives. By skillfully interrelating significant historic events in Spain and Europe with the territories in the Philippines and Micronesia, the book facilitates a keen understanding of local events within relevant global contexts. In doing so, this work effectively disrupts common notions of Micronesia as isolated and unaffected by events in the rest of the world. — Anne Perez Hattori, Ph.D., University of Guam
