The author presents an innovative and sophisticated approach to the symbolic analysis of sociocultural systems, based on her study of the fundamental practices associated with value creation on Gawa, largest of the Marshall Bennett Islands of Papua New Guinea. The Gawans participate in the long-distance kula exchange ring, and it is through the fame that they achieve in this interisland trade that the Gawan community asserts its own internal viability. The focus is on the transformative actions that take place by means of which Gawans seek to create value.

The Fame of Gawa is concerned with fundamental practices of value creation on Gawa, a small island off the southeast coast of mainland Papua New Guinea, the inhabitants of which participate in the long-distance kula shell exchange ring.

This new edition of the critically acclaimed The Fame of Gawa—originally published in 1986—makes available for the first time this important work in paperback. The Fame of Gawa is concerned with fundamental practices of value creation on Gawa, a small island off the southeast coast of mainland Papua New Guinea, the inhabitants of which participate in the long-distance kula shell exchange ring. Integrating various aspects of the study of society and culture--including the sociocultural construction of space and time, self-other relations and the body, and moral and political problems of hierarchy and equality—Nancy D. Munn shows that it is through achieving fame in the wider inter-island world that the Gawan community asserts its own internal viablity.
