This is the strange story of how, following the failure of the revolutionary Paris Commune in 1871, some 4,500 Communards were exiled to the South Pacific colony of New Caledonia. The surprising parallels and interactions between the "political savages" and the "natural savages," the Melanesian Kanak, in their confrontation with the forces of French civilization, form the subject of this book.
