Product Information
Specification
This is the first of two volumes dealing with land and churches in Melanesia. It comes to grips with some of the main issues around land, ownership and the use of land in Melanesia. It is focused on Papua New Guineans, but extends to other Melanesian people. Simply put, land in Melanesian cultures - in spite of modernisation - is never simply a commodity. Land forms part of the social fabric in the minds and hearts of Melanesians. Land issues are varied, involved and complicated. Previously, little had been written concerning the role of the churches and land matters. This volume traces the history, the philosophy and the role of the churches in land dealings in PNG. The second volume is Point No.27.
