298 pages; Fine/No Jacket - as issued. Black boards with silver lettering. Boards are straight, tips are pointed, spine is square and pages are clean. An excellent gift! Most of the chapters in this volume were first presented in a panel organized by the editors at the annual meeting of the American Anthropological Association in November 1994. Large scale comparisons are out of fashion in anthropology, but this book suggests a bold comparative approach to broad cultural differences between Africa and Melanesia. Its theme is personhood, which is understood in terms of what anthropologists call embodiment.
