The religions of Oceania by Tony Swain ( )
13 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and held by 1,300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
More than a quarter of the world's discrete religions are to be found in the regions of Australia, Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia, together called Oceania. This is the first book to bring together up-to-date information on this great variety of traditional religious beliefs and practices, which have been profoundly influential on the theories and understandings of religion in general. A comprehensive survey of the changing and various religions in the Pacific zone, The Religions of Oceania documents traditional cultures and beliefs and examines indigenous Christianity and its wide influence across the region. It covers the backgrounds to and development of traditional religions, and includes analysis of the new religious movements generated by the response of indigenous peoples to colonists and missionaries, the best known of these being the so-called 'cargo-cults' of Melanesia. The authors present a thorough and accessible survey of the diversity of religious practices in the area, and provide clear interpretative tools and a mine of fascinating information to help the student better understand the world's most complex ethnographic tapestry

Payback : the logic of retribution in Melanesian religions by G. W Trompf ( Book )
12 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Near to the heart of the human predicament are impulses to avenge - what most of us will recognize to be negative, counterproductive reactions against others who pose a threat. By contrast, nothing re-establishes our faith in humanity more than extraordinary acts of concession, such as peace-making, generosity and sacrifice. This ambitious study is the first monograph on religion and 'the logic of retribution' ever written. Garry Trompf shows how various aspects of 'payback', both negative and positive, provide the best indices to an understanding of Melanesian views of life, and that the explanatory modes of thought connected with these themes are carried through to the world of 'cargo cults' and modernization. Exploring the reasons why people 'pay back' opens up a whole new dimension in the cross-cultural study of human consciousness."--Jacket

Early Christian historiography : narratives of retributive justice by G. W Trompf ( Book )
8 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Delving into the interpretive 'tool-kit' of the earliest Christian historians, G. W. Trompf identifies and explores the 'logic of retribution' that pervades their records of the past. In particular, he shows how modes of interpreting the outcomes of events were inherited from the biblical and Greco-Roman historiographical traditions which affirm the presence of a moral order in human affairs. In the Old Testament, for example, the unfolding of narratives was intended to reveal how God blessed those who kept his commandments and requited those who turned against them. The writings of the early Christian historians reflected this logic, applied to the particular historical events they were recording, with God meting out condign recompenses for good or ill
