In anthropology, theoretical approaches attempting to come to terms with experiences of social interaction, often inspired by phenomenology, have come to the fore in opposition to the previously favored emphasis on symbolic and social structures. These essays attempt a new kind of ethnographic description of social life that treats structure and practice as aspects of the same reality. This is achieved through attention to indigenous conceptualizations of the way society itself is generated. With Jonathan Friedman and Fredrik Barth providing overviews, this series of innovative ethnographies highlights ways of forming social relations specific to Oceania as a cultural area, exemplifying a new kind of comparative approach and making a major contribution to general social theory. Ingjerd Hoem is Head of the Institute for Pacific Archaeology and Cultural History at the Kon-Tiki Museum. Sidsel Roalkvam is a Post-doctoral fellow in the Department of General Practice and Community Medicine, University of Oslo.
