Summary

Summary

McCall (anthropology, U. of New South Wales) offers a history of the development and conditions of Rapanui (both the people and the place) which is fundamentally optimistic, focusing on the Islanders' resilience and adaptability to external forces. He explores the family and its structure, spiritual beliefs, material life, emigration, attitudes toward outsiders, and conditions since 1992, when he left. No index.
