New Lives for Old: Cultural Transformation--Manus, 1928-1953

Margaret Mead

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."

New Lives for Old: Cultural Transformation -- Manus, 1928-1953.

Mead, Margaret.

New York: William Morrow and Company , 1956. First Edition. Octavo, black cloth (hardcover), xxi + 548 pp. Good+, with chips to head of spine, light foxing to endpapers; in a Good, mylar protected dust jacket with foxing and light edgewear. From dust jacket: The dramatic construction of a whole new world in twenty-five years -- that is the theme of this vigorous, optimistic, detailed report on the Manus of New Guinea. Margaret Mead first studied the Manus Islanders of the South Pacific in 1928. Then they were a people living, quite literally, in the Stone Age. Their civilization was an economic treadmill in which the adults lived angrily within an elaborate system of sanctions and taboos. Then came World War II, and the massive impact of the Air Age. Nearly a million Americans passed through New Guinea during the war, bringing with them -- and leaving behind -- both the ideas and the machinery for a new way of life. When Margaret Mead visited Manus again in 1953, she found that the Islanders had made the giant step from primitive to civilized. A unique set of conditions made this unprecedentedly rapid change possible: the Manus experience with Anglo-Saxon law, the religious idea of the brotherhood of man, the presence of an exceptionally gifted leader, and the fact that the Australian Trusteeship Administration had a plan for local self-government. Throughout the book, Dr. Mead describes this dramatic sequence of change in terms of personalities, so that her writing is always intimate and humane. The mere fact that the book could be written at all is the result of a set of circumstances that has yet to be duplicated anywhere in the world. New Lives for Old is not only a vivid account of a unique situation in the South Seas, it has important implications for developments taking place all over the world today as primitive, peasant, and exotic societies are being transformed on a twentieth-century model. Dr. Mead advances a revolutionary theory of cultural change: that rapid change is better than slow change and that many of the ills of the present world come not from too much change but from change that is too little and too late.
