The author is a French linguist and historian and this book explores the new view of language which was adopted about the time of the Renaissance. The big figure here is the Spaniard Antonio de Nebrija ( – ). He did two things that nowadays don’t seem so extraordinary but represented at the time a completely new view of language.   This history presents an authoritative and comprehensive introduction to the experiences of Pacific islanders from their first settlement of the islands to the present day. It addresses the question of insularity and explores islanders' experiences thematically, covering such topics as early settlement, contact with Europeans, colonialism, politics, commerce, nuclear testing, tradition. Isleños (Spanish:) are the inhabitants of the Canary Islands, and by extension the descendants of Canarian settlers and emigrants to present-day Louisiana, Texas, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, and other parts of the these places, the name isleño (Spanish for 'islander') was applied to the Canary Islanders to distinguish them from Spanish mainlanders known. Generations of Islenos have overcome the challenges of an evolving American society, as well as the devastation of storms that have ripped through their land. Through it all, the Islenos have preserved their unique heritage, traditions and culture for more than two centuries. This is their history.
