""Wayward Women is ethnography of the highest order from a region where anthropologists have provided works of singular merit since the days of Malinowski. The data are immensely rich and the analysis measured and balanced. References to theory illuminate accounts of daily life. The reader has a sense of witnessing and understanding the events alongside the author. This is a marvelous book.""â¿¿Shirley Lindenbaum, co-editor of Knowledge, Power, and Practice: The Anthropology of Medicine and Everyday Life ""This is a highly original study of 'sex-work' in a Papua New Guinea society, written with great clarity and grace. At its core is a carefully rendered account of the way Huli 'passenger women' understand their motivations in relation to local bridewealth and kinship systems. Wayward Women is one of the finest accounts we have of women's experiences of marriage exchange systems anywhere in the world, and it is by far the most detailed and best-rendered account we have from modern Papua New Guinea. It is also a very substantial contribution to theoretical work in both anthropology and gender studies.""â¿¿Joel Robbins, author of Becoming Sinners: Christianity and Moral Torment in a Papua New Guinea Society
