Guam - University of Guam professor Dr. Nicholas Goetzfridt has completed his latest book, Guahan: A Bibliographic History. He says the inspiration of the 600+ page book was due to a lack of books on the island's history.
Dr. Goetzfridt has written five other books on the island's history since he began teaching at UOG in 1986. he shared with KUAM News about his motivation for writing the book, saying, "I felt that it was about time to work on a very comprehensible treatment, criticism, compilation of the scholarly literature on Guam because I began to realize it was quite extensive. And I felt that if I didn't do this now much of the literature might not be as accessible as easily. But now I think it is through this book."
The book is sold out at Bestseller at GPO, but is also available on Amazon and at Barnes & Noble.
