fascinating! a classic of anthropological literature, it describes "kula" exchanges between populations of the trobriand islands (now known as the kiriwina islands) and other archipelagos east of papua new guinea (milne bay province). the kula exchanges are particular because they involve two products which have no use value but, nonetheless, catalyse the entire life of the populations involved. argonauts is also the first "modern" anthropological work, in that it thoroughly combines practical and theoretical research in one person.
