Texte du rabat

"Weiner provides not only a new perspective on social and natural reproduction but also a framework through which to compare societies. This is an original point of view that will have real effects on the direction of future fieldwork and comparative analysis."--Ivan Karp, Smithsonian Institution

Résumé
Tests anthropology's traditional assumptions about kinship, economics, power, and gender. Focusing on Oceania societies from Polynesia to Papua New Guinea and including Australian Aborigine groups, this title investigates the category of possessions that must not be given or, if they are circulated, must return finally to the giver.
