The houses far from home featured in this book are located in Vanuatu, a chain of islands between Fiji and Australia in the southwest Pacific. Once known as the Anglo-French Condominium of the New Hebrides, the islands were jointly administered by the British and French from 1906 to 1980. In this innovative and revealing study of a unique colonial project, Margaret Rodman tells the stories of these houses, exploring the profound differences of perspective, experience, and power that domestic spaces reveal and offering a novel look at the history of British colonialism in the Pacific. Each chapter has at its heart a house where readers can explore dimensions of race, gender, and power that domestic spaces reveal. Moving across time, between different islands and actors, between oral memories and archival documents, Margaret Rodman provides a richly documented multi-sited ethnography of the social history of the New Hebrides.
