Gewertz, Deborah B., Errington, Frederick K.


Deborah Gewertz and Frederick Errington have worked as anthropologists in Papua New Guinea for nearly two decades. In their second joint study of the Chambri, they look at how people in a small-scale society, peripheral to the major centres of influence, struggle to sustain some degree of autonomy. They show the Chambri caught up in world processes of social and cultural change. Although a collective biography they cunningly document the twentieth-century experience of these Papua New Guineans whom they have come to know well.Gewertz, Deborah B. is the author of 'Twisted Histories, Altered Contexts Representing the Chambri in a World System', published 1991 under ISBN 9780521395878 and ISBN 0521395879.
