Apotheosis of Captain Cook by Obeyesekere, Gananath
Apotheosis of Captain Cook: European Mythmaking in the Pacific
by Obeyesekere, Gananath
 
Debunks one of the most enduring myths of imperialism, civilization, and conquest: the notion that the Western civilizer is a god to savages. Using shipboard journals and logs kept by Captain James Cook and his officers, Obeyesekere reveals the captain as both the self-conscious civilizer and as the person who, his mission gone awry, becomes a "savage" himself.
