First published in 1877, this is volume II of "The Polynesian Race", a fascinating treatise by Abraham Fornander on the subject of the origins of the Polynesian people. By comparing the Polynesian languages, mythology, genealogies, he surmised that Polynesians first came to the Pacific in Fiji in the 1st or 2nd centuries AD; and that they were in fact Aryans who had slowly but surely migrated through India and the Malay archipelago into the Pacific islands. This fascinating volume will appeal to anyone with an interest in Polynesia and the origins of its people, their language, customs, and more. Contents include: "Resume of Conclusions Arrived At". "Names of Places Indicating Descent of Immigrants", "Names of Cardinal Points Leading to the Same Conclusion", "Legendary and Mythological Reminiscences", etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
