In "The Trobrianders of Papua New Guinea", Annette Weiner, with some input from her then-young daughter, has created an anthropological classic. Over the years, this captivating case study has provided students of history and anthropology with insightful information about a group of intriguing people whose way of life will most certainly change rapidly as the world becomes more and more homoginized.
This case study has set the bar for a new generation of anthropologists, with it's saturation of information in a highly readable format.
For the past several years, my high school students enrolled in the International Bacalaureate Social and Cultural Anthropology course have appreciated the chapters dedicated to the young Trobrianders and their courting rituals.
