Item Description: University of Queensland Press. St Lucia, Brisbane. 1979. First English Edition - ISBN-0-7022-1095-1;, 1979. No Binding. Book Condition: Fine. pages 215 pages including appendices, bibliog., and index; 30 photos, 10 figures; hardcover in pictorial dust jacket; near fine condition. Translated by Max Wohlwill. ISBN-0-7022-1095-1 Here collected in Melanesian Cargo Cults are many records of the natives' belief and interpretation of western knowledge. Even in the latter half of the twentieth century such apparent unsophistication remains, shown graphically by the fact that the Melanesians expressed the desire as independence approached that Lyndon Johnson stand for their parliament. There is evidence of warriors going into battle clutching holy water and new testaments; of a firm belief that Jesus was a Papuan and that missionaries had torn pages from the Bible to deceive them. The real significance of cargo cults as a response to the invasion of an alien powerful civilization is revealed in this valuable study by Dr Friedrich Steinbauer, first published in 1971. The original German edition has now been carefully edited and translated by Dr Max Wohlwill who, after spending some time in Papua New Guinea, wanted to share this study with English readers. Book.
