Argonauts of the western Pacific; an account of native enterprise and adventure in the archipelagoes of Melanesian New Guinea by Bronislaw Malinowski( Book )

189 editions published between 1922 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 2,726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bronislaw Malinowski's pathbreaking Argonauts of the Western Pacific is at once a detailed account of exchange in the Melanesian islands and a manifesto of a modernist anthropology. Malinowski argued that the goal of which the ethnographer should never lose sight is 'to grasp the native's point of view, his relation to life, to realise his vision of his world.' Through vivid evocations of Kula life, including the building and launching of canoes, fishing expeditions and the role of myth and magic amongst the Kula people, Malinowski brilliantly describes an inter-island system of exchange - from gifts from father to son to swapping fish for yams - around which an entire community revolves. A classic of anthropology that did much to establish the primacy of painstaking fieldwork over the earlier anecdotal reports of travel writers, journalists and missionaries, it is a compelling insight into a world now largely lost from view. With a new foreword by Adam Kuper"--

The sexual life of savages in north-western Melanesia; an ethnographic account of courtship, marriage, and family life among the natives of the Trobriand Islands, British New Guinea. With a pref. by Havelock Ellis by Bronislaw Malinowski( Book )

192 editions published between 1929 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 2,028 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exact facsimile of the original [1929] edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Profusely illustrated. All original illustrations have been retained and re-screened for this reprint edition. "The Sexual Life of Savages in North-Western Melanesia" contains ethnographic data that attempts to establish that the Freudian Oedipus complex is not universal. This important work is his second in the trilogy on the Trobrianders, with the other two being "Argonauts of the Western Pacific" (1922), and "Coral Gardens and Their Magic" (1935). In the preface Malinowski says that sexuality "dominates in fact almost every aspect of culture". Malinowski provides a detailed description of the social organization of sexuality - social rites, partner choice, et al - "tracing the Trobriand lifecycle from birth through puberty, marriage, and death". Children don't submit to a system of "domestic coercion" or "regular discipline"--They "enjoy considerable freedom and independence". The idea of a child being "beaten or otherwise punished in cold blood" by a parent is viewed as unnatural and immoral and when proposed by westerners (like the anthropologist) is "rejected with resentment". Things are asked "as from one equal to another; a simple command, implying the expectation of natural obedience, is never heard from parent to child in the Trobriands". The event of a person getting angry and striking another person "in an outburst of rage" sometimes happens but as often from parent to child as from child to parent. In further chapters, the parent-child relationship of the Trobrianders is described with details of their complex matrilineal relationship structure in which the biological parentage is ignored

42 editions published between 1938 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,065 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Besides its continuing value for an understanding of the problems of Kenya, Facing Mount Kenya has an enduring place in the literature of social anthropology. As Professor Malinowski wrote in his introduction, it 'is a really competent and instructive contribution to African ethnography by a scholar of pure African parentage...As a first-hand account of a representative African culture, as an invaluable document in the principles underlying culture-contact and change; last, but not least, as a personal statement of the new outlook of a progressive African, this book will rank as a pioneering achievement of outstanding merit'

Malinowski's Kiriwina : fieldwork photography, 1915-1918 by Michael W Young( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kiriwina, the largest of the Trobriand Islands in eastern Papua New Guinea, is anthropology's "sacred place." It was here that Bronislaw Malinowski conducted the path-breaking fieldwork that enabled him to revolutionize British social anthropology. And it was here that he developed one of anthropology's most important tools: photography. Malinowski's Kiriwina presents nearly two hundred of Malinowski's previously unpublished photographs of the Islanders among whom he lived between 1915 and 1918. The images are more than embellishments of his ethnography; they are a recreation in striking detail of a distant world. Michael Young, an anthropologist and Malinowski's authorized biographer, has selected the photographs based on one of Malinowski's unpublished studies of the region, and the plan of that abandoned project has helped structure this book
