Mead's 1930 study, reissued in celebration of the centennial of her birth, of developmental stages among the people of Manus in the Admiralty Islands to the north of New Guinea. Apart from its historical interest, the book captures the traditions and atmosphere of a local fishing village before modern transportation and tourism. Howard Gardner provides a thoughtful, largely appreciative introduction to this centennial edition which places Mead's work (and her ambivalent attitude toward the Manus villagers) in context.
