Overview

Sorrow of the Lonely and the Burning of the Dancers / Edition 2

In a work of cultural ethnology based on his fieldwork in Papua New Guinea in 1966-68, Schieffelen (emeritus, U. College, London) focuses on the significance of a ceremony known as Gisaro, which is performed by the Kaluli people, as a lens to view some of the fundamental issues of Kaluli life and society. He has added a new preface, and made some minor corrections and clarifications to the 1976 edition. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
