This monograph is a comparative study of eight ways of life of highlanders in
West Papua. It consists of ten sections: an introduction, a conclusion and
eight ethnographic chapters, each dealing with a separate way of life. I chose
this presentation since I wanted to make clear the individuality of each of
them. In the book I attempt to trace the changes in these ways of life as they
were occurring just previous to the settlement of colonial outsiders. This
attempt proved feasible since for seven of them first contact accounts are
available.
