House Upon Pacific Sand: W.H.R. Rivers and his 1908 Ethnographic ‘Survey Work’
Thorgeir Kolshus is contributing with a chapter in "The Ethnographic Experiment. A.M. Hocart and W.H.R. Rivers in Island Melanesia, 1908", which is based on historical and ethnographic sources. The article provides an critical evaluation of William Rivers' 'survey method', which has received much undeserved attention in globalization studies over the last few decades.
