First published in 1928, this volume provides a study of tribal culture on Rossel Island, otherwise known as Yela, the easternmost island in the Louisiade Archipelago, in what is now Papua New Guinea. The material used was collected by the author during a two-month stay on the island in 1921, whilst holding the position of Assistant Anthropologist to the Papuan Government. Although it was originally intended as a general survey, the text devotes special attention to aspects of life on the island that had been insufficiently analysed in past studies - a complicated network of social relationships and a monetary system. It is also notable for containing an introduction by the renowned anthropological pioneer Alfred Cort Haddon (1855-1940), along with numerous illustrative figures. This is a fascinating book that will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of anthropology and Melanesian cultures.
