Description

A re-publication of a paper on the rites of initiation and cargo cult activities in twentieth-century New Guinea. This points to some of the fundamental recurrent features of the way organised religion the world over, and stretching back into the distant past, is codified, transmitted, and remembered, as well as the structure, cohesion, and scale of resulting coalitions.
