A Place Against Time : Land and Environment in the Papua New Guinea Highlands, Paperback / softback Book

A Place Against Time : Land and Environment in the Papua New Guinea Highlands Paperback / softback

Part of the Studies in Environmental Anthropology series

Paperback / softback

Description

A Place Against Time is an ethnographically focused environmental study of Montane, New Guinea, where people were among the world's first to cultivate crops some ten millennia ago, and where today an enduring agricultural condition continues.

It arranges its account of climate, vegetation topography and geology according to their relationship with the soils of the region occupied by Wola speakers in the Southern Highlands Province of Papua New Guinea, in the Western Pacific.

This book breaks new intellectual ground as an ethno-environmental investigation with a soils perspective, ethno-pedology being a little researched topic to date.
