The Voice of Arii Taimai: Henry Adams and the Challenge of Empire

Abstract:

In his memoir about the last chiefess of Tahiti, he found a narrative that at once provided a just representation of his subject and silenced a narrative that implicated himself as biographer in his family's imperialist project.
