Fortune. Book Description This book is about the construction of cultural identity through narratives of shared history. It presents an anthropological study of processes of identity formation in a Solomon Islands society deeply affected by colonisation and Christianization.

It happened thus that I was able to go through the subjects which are treated of in this book with native instructors from the Solomon Islands, Studies in the anthropology of Bougainville Banks' Islands, and the Northern New Hebrides; with Marsden Manekalea from Ysabel, Benjamin Bele from Florida, Joseph Wate from Saa, Walter Woser from Motlav, Arthur Arudulewari from Aurora, Lewis.

Author of an early classic study, The Melanesians: Studies in their Anthropology and Folk-Lore (Codrington ), this pioneer had decades of experience from the islands, but Rivers evidently aimed to explore dimensions of Melanesian social life so far not covered by such early descriptive efforts, and, moreover, to do so using a strong theoretical platform, through a combination of brief visits to many.

InColin Freeman, librarian of the UPNG New Guinea Collection, compiled a typescript ‘Bougainville Island Bibliography’ that was based on the references in Douglas Oliver’s pioneering Studies in the Anthropology of Bougainville, Solomon Islands.

A key figure in the anthropology of leadership is the 'Big Man', the prototypical Melanesian political leader who stands at the centre of a complex of economic and political structures found. Abstract. To introduce a set of genetic studies among Solomon Islanders, four tribal groups on Bougainville and Malaita Islands are described.

They were observed in and by social anthropologists and biomedical scientists from Harvard University. The groups varied in habitat and way of life from fishermen living on artificial islets in a saltwater lagoon (the Lau, on Malaita) to shifting agriculturists (the Nasioi, on Bougainville.

The book notionally hinges on the lessons that the global mining industry learned from the events that took place on the island of Bougainville, which is only a short boat ride from the Solomon Islands where Cochrane started his career.

The emphasis in the book is on the Solomon Islands-Bougainville area, with twenty of the twenty-seven chapters devoted to developments in the Solomon Islands and Bougainville: eleven chapters deal with the Solomon Islands alone, seven chapters describe events in Bougainville and two chapters (chapters 12 and 27) are shared by both regions.

The conflict was described by Bougainvillean President John. The Solomon Islands has its own history with Bougainville and needs to be included in any analysis. Breakaway movements have surfaced periodically in Solomons’ Western Province, including at the time of the Solomons’ independence in [84].

This chapter applies the book’s spatial sensibility to provide a fresh perspective on the Bougainville conflict and the role that the Panguna mine played in it.
