The Papua New Guinea described here is not a place of exotic tribesmen, but a modernising society, shaped by global forces, and increasingly divided on class lines. The authors describes the life-style of the elite Wewak, a typical commercial centre, their golf clubs and Rotary gatherings, and bring home the ways in which differences of status are created, experienced and justified.

In a country with a long tradition of egalitarianism, it has become at once possible and plausible for relatively affluent nationals to present themselves in a wide range of contexts as fundamentally superior to bushy people, to blame the poor for their misfortunes, and to turn their backs on their less successful relatives.
