Structure and Process in a Melanesian Society
Ponam's Progress in the Twentieth Century
First Published in 1991. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.
Achsah and James Carrier studies Ponam society over a period of eight tears. After thirteen months of fieldwork they moved to Port Moresby and taught for seven years at the University of Papua New Guinea, frequently returning to Ponam. Since 1987 they have lived in Charlottesville in the US.
". . .the book [is] valuable not only for what it has to say about a contemporary Papua New Guinea community. . .but more particularly for its wide-ranging critique of other anthropological accounts of Melanesian societies."
