Acclaimed travel writer Rick Antonson (Full Moon Over Noah’s Ark) tackles his most challenging adventure yet: a formidable trail through the remote jungles of Papua New Guinea. Rick Antonson has traveled to parts of the world that are not simply exotic but sometimes damned near inaccessible. He has climbed to the summit of Mount Ararat in eastern Turkey, traveling beyond to Iraq and Iran and Armenia. He has undertaken an improbable overland journey to the ancient city of Timbuktu, an enlightening look into efforts to preserve the city’s priceless manuscripts. Now he has traversed the notorious Kokoda Trail in Papua New Guinea, a country some call “the last wild place on earth.” The trail is a narrow, 60-mile footpath featuring rough jungle, 6,000 feet in elevation change, and punishing weather extremes. In a country unfairly locked in Western misperceptions, the track is inhospitable terrain yet home to hospitable indigenous peoples, who live among the rusting reminders of the Japanese, Australian, and American armies that clashed in some of the deadliest protracted combat of World War II. In Walking With Ghosts in Papua New Guinea, Antonson shares a journey of physical and mental endurance in his inimitable way, in the company of a mixed band of resolute adventurers, blending fascinating historical context with the tribulations of unexpected discoveries in faraway lands.

More than 80 years ago, Caroline Mytinger, a portrait artist, and her childhood friend Margaret Warner set out by freighter from San Francisco with little more than $400 in their pocket and a tin of paints to their name. Their objective was to paint portraits of the tribal people of Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands before the encroachment of modern, European-style culture changed their lives forever. This gripping book tells of the two women’s experiences whilst travelling through Melanesia between 1926 and 1930.

Forced to Flee

'The Modern Refugee Era' began with the end of World War II. An extensive literature has been created on the issue of refugees and other forcibly displaced persons during this period. While much of this has focused on refugee 'flight' and 'post-flight,' Forced to Flee uniquely looks at the 'pre-flight' environment and the factors contributing to human rights violations therein. It is due to these abuses that many people flee their homelands. Author Peter W. Van Arsdale presents first-hand fieldwork conducted over a 30-year span in six refugee homelands ranging from Sudan to Bosnia. This expert research bridges the emergent refugee and human rights regimes, while addressing theories of obligation, justice, and structural inequality. Van Arsdale also deftly tackles the difficult ideas of compassion, suffering, and evil, and introduces the concept of 'pragmatic humanitarianism.' Forced to Flee is a comprehensive study that should be of great interest to scholars and practitioners of anthropology, sociology, social work, political science, and environmental studies.

Papua New Guinea is a place that captures the imagination. It is linguistically, culturally, and environmentally diverse. Its history is a layered saga of colonialism; the indigenous inhabitants of Papua New Guinea were at different points in time administered by Germany, Britain, and Australia. This collection of anthropological essays attempts to reveal the complexity of Papua New Guinea’s colonial experience. In these original essays, ten Pacific scholars look at Papua New Guinea’s colonial experience through a diverse array of eyewitnesses, sources, and viewpoints. These narratives provide a rich and nuanced set of testimonies and reflections, enabling a full range of historical personae to speak to the reality of colonial life. Together, their stories form a detailed ethnography of colonists and colonizers, an entirely new, and necessary, contribution toward understanding Papua New Guinea in particular and colonialism in general.

Papua New Guinea’s mighty Sepik River has been home to many communities for over a thousand years and yet how much do we, as outsiders, really know and understand the culture and visual arts of this region? Myth + Magic: Art of the Sepik River, Papua New Guinea provides a rare opportunity to encounter masterpieces from the Sepik, works of art that speak of a time and place where spirits and ancestors were integral to daily life. These works come from the rich collections of the National Gallery of Australia, other Australian museums and art galleries, and the Papua New Guinea National Museum and Art Gallery. This publication celebrates the unique cultures of a country that is now celebrating its fortieth anniversary of independence. The Sepik River is home to an array of art-producing communities distinguished for their visual arts, including sculptures of supernatural beings, masks and other fascinating objects that beguile and bewilder all who encounter them. For its inhabitants the Sepik River is a place of both serenity and harshness: a rich environment that has supported its people for generations but also delivers challenges through floods, clouds of mosquitoes and crocodiles. In pre-Christian times Sepik communities were faced with the constant threat of danger, as ambushes for the purpose of headhunting were a customary practice, and the limitations on engaging on any level with outsiders, beyond trade with trusted inter-community partners, were considerable. Given the need to survive in what is at times a confronting environment, one can imagine how the animist-like pantheons of spirits, both benevolent and malign, were translated into physical works of art by master-carver artists. Myth + Magic presents the greatest examples of Sepik River art held in the southern hemisphere. This publication provides the best possible platform to acknowledge what these objects truly are—markers of culture, beyond their ethnographical worthiness, and powerful works of world art.
