"Argonauts of the Western Pacific" is widely regarded as a masterpiece of anthropology. Through it Malinowski became one of the best-known anthropologists in the world in the 1920's. Malinowski's reading of "The Golden Bough" introduced him to anthropology, so it is fitting that this edition is prefaced by Sir James George Frazer. COMPLETE AND UNABRIDGED: contains the full text of "Argonauts of the Western Pacific" including preface, illustrations and index.
