In the latest issue of the Journal of Pacific History (vo1.28:284-6), there is a review of the Paul Bahn!John Flenley book Easter Island, Earth Island (Thames and Hudson, London 1992) which has prompted me to say a few things about the book myself. The reviewer, Rapa Nui specialist Grant McCall, says that Thor Heyerdahl is 'unlikely to be pleased' at the book's 'consistent dismissal' of his work and that my research into Easter Island's prehistory is cited three times and refuted.
