CollectionsANU Press (1965- Present)
Title: Cinderellas of the empire : towards a history of Kiribati and Tuvalu
Author(s): Macdonald, Barrie
Date published: 1982
Publisher: Canberra, ACT : Australian National University Press
Barrie Macdonald graduated from Victoria University of Wellington in 1967 and completed his PhD in 1971 at the Australian National University. Cinderellas of the the Empire was written at Massey University, New Zealand, where the author is Senior Lecturer in History, and at the Australian National University where he was a Research Fellow in the Department of Pacific and South East Asian History. As can be seen from his book, Barrie Macdonald was granted special access to government archives and made discriminating use of these archives, in addition to his use of missionary sources and other private papers. A decade of fieldwork and interviews with leading political figures give flesh to his impeccable use of the written sources. Barrie Macdonald is currently working on a general book on colonialism, decolonisation and development in Oceania.
