About the author (1970)

Raymond Firth, a New Zealand-born English anthropologist, was Bronislaw Malinowski's successor at the London School of Economics. In 1928 he first visited the tiny island of Tikopia in the Solomons, and his monograph We, the Tikopia (1936) established his fame. A devoted student of Malinowski, he established no school of anthropological thought, but his productive scholarship and academic statesmanship won him an important reputation in social anthropology.
