Abstract

the contemporary pacific · fall 2003 Wittersheim, following earlier research in New Caledonia, are clearly exercising such a mandate. Their strategy has been to invite experienced scholars from other countries to contribute to the seminars. This fact is a defining characteristic of La tradition et l'État in the sense that, apart from the introduction by the editors, four of the eight articles were written originally in English by North American or European scholars--Bronwen Douglas, Ton Otto, Lissant Bolton, and Jonathan Friedman--and can be considered to be largely syntheses of work already published in that language. In other words, they represent exercises in translation of existing material from one scholarly community to another, thereby nourishing a new and welcome scholarly initiative in France. Douglas (Australia) shares some of her concerns about gender issues in Vanuatu, notably in the context of the contemporary institutions of the Church and the State. Otto (Denmark) explores the different ways in which power is exercised on the island of Baluan, Manus Province. Bolton (United Kingdom) reflects on the role of radio in redefining kastom in Vanuatu. Friedman (Sweden and France) is alone in moving beyond the confines of Melanesia to explore the oftentimes tense
