5.0 out of 5 stars Another fine contribution to a fascinating subject, September 24, 2010
This book is more proof that there is a current Zeitgeist which wants to shed more light on the relationship between "primitive" art and the moderns, a phenomenon that had been forgotten and marginalized for too long. It is difficult to assess today what an impact the native arts of Africa and Oceania had on artists in the early 20th Century, and how and why they could use these esthetic concepts as inspiration and as subversive tools to rock the Status Quo, but this book admirably enlightens and broadens the view on this important step in the evolution of modern art.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Tiki joy to behold, July 22, 2007
With its stellar research, witty writing style and juicy imagery this Tiki tome is really a treat way beyond the drink recipes in it. It recaptures the history of Polynesian pop as viewed through a cocktail glass, with a wealth of deep information and never before seen visual material. By meeting the makers and shakers of many fine but forgotten cocktail creations, the mixing and imbibing of these potent potions will allow you to taste history, and picture yourself lounging in the long gone Polynesian palaces depicted in this book. A gem.
