- DescriptionThis compelling ethgraphy offers a nuanced case study of the ways in which the Maisin of Papua New Guinea navigate pressing ecomic and environmental issues. Beautifully written and accessible to most readers, Ancestral Lines is designed with introductory cultural anthropology courses in mind.

The second edition has been revised throughout, with a new timeline of events and a final chapter that brings readers up to date on important events since 2002, including a devastating cyclone and a major court victory against the forestry industry.
