Maps, black and white photographic illustrations, x + xiii + 258pp., index, bibliography, notes, appendix, a very good copy in paperback. "Deborah Gewertz and Frederick Errington have worked as anthropologists in Papua new Guinea for nearly two decades. In their second joint study of the Chambri, they consider the way those in a small-scale society, peripheral to the major centres of influence, struggle to sustain some degree of autonomy. They describe the Chambri caught up in world processes of social and cultural change, and attempt to create a "collective biography" which conveys the intelligibility and significance of the twentieth-century experience of these Papua New Guineans whom they have come to know well" - Publisher's Description.
