The focus of this essay is on the process of leadership in the Manus Province of Papua New Guinea. The work is based on fieldwork but the study also explores data from pre-colonial times. It proceeds to more recent periods and includes an examination of the Paliau Movement, established in the province in 1946. The study demonstrates how traditional patterns of dominance and leadership have been transformed and incorporated into present-day political organization. 0.0.
