Created by a man from the Australian Aboriginal group of the Anbarra, 20 dialogues describe the societal structures, beliefs, and lives of male Anbarra through created interactions between family members in a variety of life-cycle situations from birth to death. Dialogues deal with infancy, boyhood, circumcision, young love and early marriage, reciprocity in marriage, ideal marriage, jealousy, spousal abuse, an elopement, ritual friendship, economic trading partnerships, capital punishment, and the formalities of death. The dialogues are presented in English and in their original language. The CD-ROM contains the dialogues in audio form and further anthropological information on Anbarra society.
