"With emphasis on Mead's commitment to nurturing differences among people and cultures, Jacqueline Ludel examines in detail Mead's study of young people in Samoa and her work with the Manus of the Admiralty Islands.  Of special interest is a comparison between the Manus when Margaret Mead first met them in 1928 and the same people twenty-five years later after prolonged contact with outside cultures during World War II had transformed their way of life."
