About this title

Synopsis:

South coast New Guinea has long been a focus of ethnographic attention, with its varied cultures, its reputation for flamboyant sexual practices, and its traditions of headhunting. Dr. Knauft examines previous ethnographic material to reanalyze the region's seven major language-culture areas, covering a range of topics including sexuality, social inequality, the status of women, religion, politics and violence. Ethnographically rich and theoretically sophisticated, this book will be essential reading for all those interested in Melanesia, and should be read by anyone concerned with the problems of cultural comparison.

Book Description:

Topics ranging from sexuality, social inequality and the status of women to religion, politics and violence are covered in this reevaluation of a region known for its flamboyant sexual practices and traditions of headhunting.
