summary

Martin Soukup's book reflects on the developmental changes in social and cultural anthropology and simultaneously describes and interprets the main characteristics of the Melanesian cultures. It tracks the lives of prominent anthropologists, taking note of the circumstances in which they undertook their field research and translates their explanations of the native cultures. The book draws on extensive literature and also on the author's own experience gained while researching in the field in New Guinea. One of the book's advantages is its clear and systematic treatment of the subject and numerous illustrations and maps. It is intended for not only for students of anthropology, ethnology and sociology, but also for professionals and others interested cultural diversity and its recognition.
