About this title:

Synopsis: Raiding, Trading, and Feasting presents the first comprehensive analysis of how participation in this trade related to broader changes in the political economy of these Philippine island societies. By combing archaeological evidence with historical sources, Laura Junker is able to offer a morenuanced examination of the nature and evolution of Philippine maritime trading chiefdoms. Most importantly, she domenstrates that it is the dynamic interplay between investment in the maritime luxury goods tade and other eveolving aspects of local political economies, rather than foreign contacts, that led to the cyclical coalescence of larger and more complex chiefdoms in Philippine history. It is a volume of impressive scholarship and substantial scope and will be welcomed by Philippine and Asian historians and anthropologists and those interested in the theoretical issues of chiefdoms.
