Abstract:

This book is a major scientific contribution to economic anthropology and has now become a standard work. The original edition gave the first systematic analysis of the basic problems concerned with the accumulation and disposal of wealth among the pre-European Maori. In the elucidation of this important aspect of Maori sociology the rich data accumulated by generations of scholars were brought into perspective in the light of modern theory. The analysis of the structure and operations of primitive Maori economic affairs was completed by an examination of the changes resulting from the contact of Maori with Europeans. For this new edition the general intoductory chapter has been completely rewritten and much new material added. The final chapter on the post-European period has been much expanded to show the developing contribution of the modern Maori to New Zealand society as a whole.
