Abstract

Cargo cults' have long attracted the scholarly attention as well as the ill-informed curiosity of observers of Melanesia. More recently the proliferation of a variety of spontaneous local movements and the emergence of more specifically focussed interest groups have been the subjects of several studies and a point of departure for investigations into questions of social stratification and class formation in Papua New Guinea. This volume brings together three papers which have contributed to the recent literature in this area. (First paragraph of Preface.)
