Publisher's Summary

Revised to stimulate and engage an undergraduate student audience, Richard Feinberg's updated account of Anuta opens with a chapter on his varied experiences when he initially undertook fieldwork in this tiny, isolated Polynesian community in the Solomon Islands. He explores dominant cultural features, including language, kinship, marriage, politics, and religion topics that align with subject matter covered in introductory anthropology courses and he looks at some of the challenges Anutans face in the 21st century. Like many other peoples living on small, remote islands, Anutans strive to maintain traditional values while at the same time becoming involved in the world market economy. In all, Feinberg gives listeners magnificent material for studying the relations between demography, environment, culture, and society in this changing world.
The book is published by Kent State University Press.

Interesting story, but disruptive performance

I was given this book for free, and asked to provide a review in return. Unfortunately, I could not finish it. I tried listening, but the performance was a dealbreaker. It was extremely choppy, with the tone of voice going up and down in wrong parts of sentences which makes following the story extremely difficult. At times I thought that the text was read by a "text to speech" computer programme. All the words in native language are pronounced as if it's the first time the reader ever said them out loud. Even though the actual content of the book is interesting, I don't think the audio part is ready for audiences.
