About this title


Dust jacket notes: "The Dugum Dani, on whose culture this extraordinary book is the first full photographic record, are a Stone Age tribe of neolithic warrior farmers who live in the Grand Valley of Baliem in the Central Highlands of western New Guinea. At the time these photographs were taken, the Dugum Dani were almost unique, for they still not only practised ritual warfare but were virtually untouched by any forms of modern civilization. In 1961 the Film Study Center of Harvard University's Peabody Museum mounted an expedition to record this pristine world. Robert Gardner had organized the Center for anthropological film research because, as he says, 'By the year 2000 human society promises to vary little from continent to continent. Transportation and communication will link the remotest valley and farthest plateau with centers of technology. Deserts will be watered, marshes drained, and the cultures that developed in response to isolation or hardship will have disappeared...." Hardcover, 8.75 x 11.25 inches, xx+184 pages, illustrated with 337 photographs in color and black and white, Index.
