Moon Handbooks South Pacific, first published in 1979, was the original single-volume guide to the 15 countries and territories of Polynesia and Melanesia: French Polynesia, Pitcairn Islands, Easter Island, the Cook Islands, Niue, Tonga, American Samoa, Samoa, Fiji Islands, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Wallis and Futuna, and Tuvalu. This 2004 edition provides an intelligent discussion of the region's economies, cultures, and peoples enabling visitors to comprehend the South Pacific of today.
David has produced a great book on Vanuatu albeit it is naturally now out of date. The National Tourism office is now www.vanuatu.travel and the equaly most comprehensive up to date site on Vanuatu travel is www.vanuatu-hotels.vu.
