In 1933 an Australian expedition discovered in the New Guinea
Highlands a people who had for thousands of years been living
isolated from the civilized world, the Chimbu. Never before was the
westernization of an isolated people so thoroughly examined. This
volume illustrates, contrary to widely held preconceptions about
the nature of primitive societies, that the Chimbu have always been
an adaptable people, whose concern for the present and for change
has surpassed their attachment to tradition and the past.
