About This Item

1st printing
"Margaret Mead first studied the Manus Islanders of New Guinea in 1928, they were living with a Stone Age technology. Economically vulnerable and burdened by a complex moral code, the Manus seemed ill-equipped to handle the massive impact that World War II had on their secluded world.
But a unique set of circumstances allowed the Manus to adapt swiftly to the twentieth century, and their experience led Mead to develop a revolutionary theory of cultural transformation, one that favors rapid, over piecemeal, change."

Terms of Sale

Pontaccio

Pontaccio takes pride in accurate descriptions, careful wrapping and quick shipping.

In these times; however, there are issues with the USPS (delays in trucking, reduced staff & lost packages) therefore, Priority or insured Media Mail is recommended.

Please Note: All shipping costs are based on an average sized book. Our international "expedited rate" is quoted from USPS Flatrate Priority envelope rate for that country; therefore, if you order a multi-volume title or a book too large for the envelope, we will contact you after your purchase to let you know what additional shipping charges need to be applied.
