Summary: This collection of 14 documents describes the Manus people during the period from 1870 to 1992, with a concentration on the 1920s. The Manus are residents of the Papua New Guinea province of Manus. The American anthropologist Margaret Mead (1901-1978) conducted fieldwork on the island from 1928-1929 and again in 1953. This collection contains several her works, including her main monographs on personality development and a follow-up study, 25 years later, on the same subject. The other works by Mead in this collection focus on kinship, animism and children's thought, trade and exchange, and a general introduction to Manus culture and society. Fortune wrote on the Manus religion. Carrier and Schwartz wrote on the Manus economy. Gustafsson wrote his doctoral dissertation on Manus leadership. Otto examines the life of one particular leader, Paliau Maloat, and the history of the movement he led. Romanucci-Ross examines Manus medical treatment.
