About this title


Focusing on the intimate relationship between law, culture, and the production of social knowledge, these essays re-center law in social theory. Speaking to Fijian and Hawaiian circumstances, this volume illuminates the role of legal and archival practice in constructing ethnic and political identities and producing colonial and anthropological knowledge. North America: School for Advanced Research Press
