Most widely held works by Hugh Laracy
Marists and Melanesians : a history of Catholic missions in the Solomon Islands by Hugh Laracy( Book )
9 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 309 libraries worldwide
Tuvalu : a history by Simati Faaniu( Book )
8 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 134 libraries worldwide
"This book is a history of Tuvalu written by Tuvaluans. It is intended both as a contribution to the knowledge of Pacific history and as an expression of Tuvalu’s cultural identity, complementing the political identity officially born in 1978 when Tuvalu became an independent nation. It is fitting that people who rule their own country should produce a history of their own for they, more than any others, should know – and need to know – who they are."--Back cover

Watriama and Co : further Pacific Islands portraits by Hugh Laracy( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 17 libraries worldwide
"Watriama and Co (the title echoes Kipling's Stalky and Co!) is a collection of biographical essays about people associated with the Pacific Islands. It covers a period of almost a century and a half. However, the individual stories of first-hand experience converge to some extent in various ways so as to present a broadly coherent picture of 'Pacific History'. In this, politics, economics and religion overlap. So, too, do indigenous cultures and concerns; together with the activities and interests of the Europeans who ventured into the Pacific and who had a profound, widespread and enduring impact there from the nineteenth century, and who also prompted reactions from the Island peoples. Not least significant in this process is the fact that the Europeans generated a 'paper trail' through which their stories and those of the Islanders (who also contributed to their written record) can be known. Thus, not only are the subjects of the essays to be encountered personally, and within a contextual kinship, but the way in which the past has shaped the future is clearly discernible. Watriama himself features in various historical narratives. So, too, certain of his confrères in this collection, which is the product of several decades of exploring the Pacific past in archives, by sea, and on foot through most of Oceania"--Back cover
