This book studies the Hahalis Welfare Society, a Bougainville movement which worked for many years to maintain and reform traditional practices and to retain a degree of autonomy in a world of rapid political change and economic dependency. The first extended ethnography of Buka published in nearly sixty years, this book will be of particular interest to Melanesian specialists.

'A frustrating lacuna in the literature of social movements in Melanesia has finally been filled, and with undeniable authority.' Research in Melanesia
