Rivalry and confrontation were part of this epic. From the sixteenth tothe nineteenth century European powers contested for the riches of theEast and the West, the wealth of the ocean, and territory to satecolonial ambitions. Since that time full-blooded conflicts developedbetween Asian states and between Asia and the Western powers. As amajor trading power in the Pacifc with no tradition of territorialexpansion, and as a respected peacekeeper, Canada is in a uniqueposition to view the history of the Pacific impartially. This survey isdoubly valuable, not only as the first history of the North Pacificdealing with the concurrent events in the East and West, but also as ahistory reflecting Canada's international outlook.
