The work as a whole covers the history of the islands from colonial beginnings to the death of Louis XV, with special reference to the work of the French, an with emphasis on the connection between naval power and a colonial empire. Appendixes reproduce official documents relating to the French islands. These are of great value as many are inaccessible elsewhere." Ragatz, p. 162.
