Summary
In this reprint from 2007, Gascoigne (Australian Academy of the Humanities) details the travels of Captain James Cook in terms of how his British cultural roots intersected with the cultures of countries he voyaged to in the Pacific. He describes the culture of Yorkshire and London and the Atlantic world, and how his life experiences affected cultural encounters with people in places such as Tahiti, New Zealand, and Hawaii, through topical chapters on trade, war, politics, religion, sex, and death.
