The South Sea Books featured titles of general interest and broad appeal. Five titles appeared in this series, as well as The Pacific Way: A Memoir, by Ratu Sir Kamisese Mara (1997), which was jointly published with the East-West Center’s Pacific Islands Development Program and the University of Hawai‘i Press. South Sea Books has now merged with Pacific Islands Monograph Series.
