Arrow Talk: Transaction, Transition, and Contradiction in New Guinea Highlands History Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Arrow Talk makes a significant contribution to the understanding of Melanesian culture and contemporary sociopolitical issues in Papua New Guinea. In a postmodern era in which culture has been dismissed by many anthropologists as a reification, this book makes a cogent argument for cultural holism by showing how symbolic, psychological, religious, and linguistic factors have combined to shape Melpa responses to the political and economic crises they have had to face. This analysis also contributes to the development of anthropological perspectives on colonial and postcolonial historical processes.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 198-208) and index.
