More specifically the book has attempted to reveal the similarities and divergences between these two British explorers and their respective interpretations of Pacific natives.

Furthermore, the backdrop of Enlightenment thought is used to elucidate a better understanding of the encounters of the two very different societies of Western Europe and the Pacific world during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Finally, this work is important in that it sheds light on the relevance of better understanding attitudes and assumptions held by European explorers during this era- this is especially significant considering the continuing ramifications of imperialism around the globe.
