Indo-Iranian Frontier Languages. 4 vols. in 6. 1st ed. 1929-1 956, 2nd revised ed. 1973. NOK 950,-
(B 11, 35, 40/1-3, 58).
The author was from 1924 on engaged in the recording and study of the languages on both sides of the Indo-Iranian frontier, in Afghanistan, North-Western India (now Pakistan) and Soviet Pamir. These languages, some of which were up to then completely unknown, while knowledge of the otherswere scanty, are of considerable scholarly interest, retaining as they do numerous archaic features which may throw light upon the historical development of Indo-Aryan and Iranian and upon the interrelation between these two linguistic groups and other branches of Indo-European. The languagesand dialects in question are now tending to disintegrate, even to be supplanted by others.
The author presents an absorbing study of each of these languages from an historical and comparative point of view. In most cases no more recent studies of them have so far been published. All the volumes also contain many interesting samples of local folk-literature, ballads, legends, etc., thus preserving records of valuable traditions that have died out since the books were written.
The new edition (1973) contains important corrigenda and addenda to the earlier volumes.

Vol. 2: Iranian Pamir Languages: Yigdha-Munji, Sanglechi-Iskashami and Wakhi.

The popularity of the Norwegian-American comicstrip "Han Ola og han Per" by P. J. Rosendahl is tested by its long run and its many reruns among Norwegian immigrants in the United states. What is less understood and appreciated is that for the student of American immigrant life and experience itis also a precious cultural resource. The purpose of this publication is to make its first part available both for American and Norwegian readers and scholars in convenient book form, and by giving it a proper setting through a dual introduction, to bring out its importance (a) as a unique sample of the humour of an important ethnic group, and (b) as an authentic linguistic document ofthe daily life of a bilingual community in the processof transition from Norwegian to American identity.

A Handbook of the Tokelau Language by Even Hovdhaugen, Ingjerd Hoëm, Consulata Mahina Iosefo, and Arnfinn Muruvik Vonen. 1989. 125 pp. ISBN 82-00-02799-6 (paperback). NOK 290,-.
This is the first extensive description of Tokelauan, a Polynesian language spoken by about 1600 people on the three Tokelau islands and by about 3000 Tokelauans living in New Zealand. The book is written for Tokelau teachers and higher levelstudents and contains general information about language and a grammar of Tokelauan. The book has been prepared by three Norwegian researchers and a Tokelau teacher in cooperation with Tokelauan authorities. An important part of the book is the creation of a Tokelau linguistic terminology. Tokelauan has until recently mainly been an oral language and this handbook together with a school grammar written inTokelauan by the same group of authors, will mean a major step towards establishing a Tokelauan written language.

Tibetan Buddhist Nuns: History, Cultural Norms and Social Reality 1989. 251 pp. ISBN 82-00-02846-1. NOK 341,-.
This book offers for the first time a comprehensiveaccount of Buddhist nuns and Tibetan Buddhist nunsin particular. Until the Chinese occupation, Tibetan nunneries existed side by side with monasteries, but during the Cultural Revolution thousands of monasteries and nunneries were destroyed. Despite religious and political persecution, women continue to take Buddhist wows and live in organised monastic communities in Tibet. Furthermore, a few Tibetan exile nunneries have been established in order to preserve the opportunity for women to become nuns in the Tibetan tradition. Based on historical research and an extensive period of fieldwork in an exile nunnery in India, the present study gives a detailed description of the life of Buddhist nuns past and present. Particular attention is paid to the relationship between the normative view of women in Buddhism and how in fact Tibetan nuns adjust to, or try to alter, these norms.

80 BRØGGER, JAN
Pre-Bureaucratic Europeans: A Study of a Portuguese Fishing Community 1989. 151 pp. ISBN 82-00-02880-1. NOK 315,-. This book is unique because it explores one of the few remaining communities in which the communal life of the European Middle Ages has been preserved. Combining the insights of social anthropology with recent contributions in social and intellectual history, the author offers a comprehensive view of our own recent past. The study shows the enduring relevance of the distinction, pointed out by 19th century sociologists, between the close-knit community, the Gemeinschaft, and the large-scale society, the Gesellschaft. Nazaré, a Portuguese fishing community, is described as a Gemeinschaft, and the reason why it has retained this traditional structure issought in the female-dominated family system which has prevented the privatization of family life. The descent group, which is the focus of the social horizon of the Nazarenos, is dominated by powerful women. Through an analysis of the system of interaction, a particular pre-bureaucratic mode of being, consciousness and behaviour is identified, which recalls the historical reconstructions of Elias, Foucault and Stone.

This is a reprint of an archeological report originally published in 1956 in American Antiquity, describing the findings of the Norwegian Expeditionto the Galápagos Islands in 1953. Since the original version had a very limited distribution, the authors hav e felt the need of making a reprint for the large number of scholars who have become involved in archeological investigations in north-western South America during the last decades. Since many of the new generation of archaeologists are Latin Americans, a Spanish translation has been added to the publication.

82 DAHL, OTTO CHRISTIAN
Migration from Kalimantan to Madagascar 1991.145 pp. ISBN 82-00-21140-1. NOK 241,-.
This book is a thorough and critical evaluation of the various theories about the Austronesian immigration to Madagascar. The author deals primarily with three main questions: the route of the emigration from Borneo; the actual time of the immigration; and the question whether there was only one or several waves of immigration.
With regard to all of these questions, the author succeeds in presenting new material. He argues, for instance, that the migration took place via Sumatra, where the Austronesian influence is still evident. Dahl's critical examination and new evaluation of earlier sources, together with a series of profound etymological and historical analyses, make this bookas crucial work in West-Austronesian research. Furthermore, by combining linguistics with insights derived from anthropology and the history of religion, the author has produced a book whose audience ought to go beyond the narrow group of specialists.

85 MOSEL, ULRIKE, EVEN HOVDHAUGEN
Samoan Reference Grammar 1992. 819 pp. ISBN 82-00-21668-3. NOK 433,-.
This is the first extensive grammar of Samoan, by number of speakers the largest Polynesian language and spoken by more than 200,000 people in WesternSamoa and American Samoa and about 100,000 Samoan migrants in New Zealand, Australia, Hawaiiand the US West Coast. The grammar is divided into 18 chapters which cover phonetics, phonology, and orthography, word classification and morphology, the syntax of various types of phrases, simple clause structure, nominal-ization, dependent clauses, coordination, and finally,case marking and grammatical relations. The descrip-tive framework is not tied to any particular linguistic theory, but is based on the empirical findings of linguistic typology during the last two decades. The grammar is descriptive in the sense that it takes the Samoan ways of expression as the starting point of analysis and describes the meaningswhich are encoded by the various types of construction. Extensive Samoan and English indices enable the reader to easily use the grammar as a work of reference without having a previous knowledge of the Samoan language. The grammar is based on oral literature, on literary texts written by modern authors from Western Samoa and on field work notes which the authors collected during their frequent stays in Western Samoa, mainly in villages. Several aspects of Samoan grammar are most relevant to current linguistic theories: The extensive use of derivational morphology and the lack of inflection; the weak distinction between the major word classes of noun, verb, and adjective; the ergative case marking system and the lack of both a passive and an anti-passive; the dispensability of core arguments; the frequent use of nominalization even in colloquial speech.

The Long Way Home: Dilemmas of Everyday Life in a Tongan Village1993. 166 pp. ISBN 82-00-41092-7. NOK 200,-.
With this study of a village in the Pacific kingdom.
of Tonga, the author sets out to understand the cultural dynamics embedded in everyday-life interaction in this small community. By focusing on dilemmas facing village youth as they become committed to different life-careers, the pervasive significance of gender relations and relations of seniority is highlighted. In the examination of these social relationships the author also discusses important characteristics of the relationship between periphery and centre. In the final part of the book, insights gained are used to improve the understanding of the dynamics of cultural stability and change in contemporary Tonga.

"The Orange of Love" and Other Stories: The Rom-Gypsy Language in Norway; in cooperation with Knut Kristiansen. 1994. 305 pp., ill. ISBN 82-00-41094-3. NOK 341,-.
This work is a contribution to our knowledge of Romanes, an Indo-Aryan language, and of the culture and oral traditions of the Rom people. The dialect of the Norwegian Rom people belongs to a group of the so-called Vlax dialects, the users of which are able to understand and communicate with one another. These dialects are also spoken world-wide by large numbers of people. The author has been in close contact with the Norwegian Rom over a period of twenty years and has developed an orthography for their dialect. Among the many tales and stories he has collected over the years, sixteen are presented here in the original dialect. English translations are provided together with a vocabulary.

Karchana: Lifeworld-Ethnography ofan Indian Village 1995. xviii, 211 pp, ill. ISBN 82-00-21507-5. NOK 362,-
(B-89).
Karchana is a complex Hindu village community of 3900 inhabitants organized into 35 different castes. The village is located close to the main "artery" of Indian civilization - the sacred river Ganges and celebrated centres of pilgrimage - in theeconomically backward, yet politically and culturally influential Eastern Uttar Pradesh.
The study is based on the "life-world ethnography" approach, which is of particular value because it enables the understanding of the village community as a part of the greater civilization that isIndia. Furthermore, the work provides an up-dated and fascinating picture of the multi-faceted life of the Indian village. Although the main theoretical thrust of the monograph is classical in the sense of providing a holistic account of a village community, it also presents a new approach to the problems of writing culture by applying the four analytical concepts of arena, lifeworld, subjective and inter-subjective fact.The author argues that these concepts facilitate a better way of making anthropological holism than what is the case with the partsystem/ institution set-up of the traditional monograph.

"Stallo"-boplassene: Spor etter de første fjellsamer? 1994. 141 pp. ISBN 82-7099-226-7. NOK 297,-
Det hevdes ofte at samene helt til nyere tid var et "naturfolk" som levde av jakt og fangst og at tamreindrift oppsto som et resultat av overbeskatning og utrydding av villreinen. Både forskere og samene selv formidler dette bildet, men er dette riktig?
Denne boka argumenterer for at det kan være på tide å revidere hevdvunne oppfatninger om tidspunktfor reindriftas oppkomst. Utgangspunktet for diskusjonen er de særegne "stallo"-boplassene som finnes i høyfjellsterreng langs Kjølen. Boplassene var i bruk i vikingtid og tidlig middelalder, dvs. fra ca. 900 til ca. 1350 e. Kr., og har tidligere vært oppfattet som svar på vikingtidas økte etterspørsel etter produkter fra villrein. Her hevdes det istedet at boplassene er spor etter etablering av fjellsamisk reindrift. Videre hevdes det at vikingtidas fjellsamer hadde en dominerende stilling innenfor det samiske samfunnet.

A Way With Words: Language and Culture in Tokelau Society. Orchid Press, 1995. 232 pp, ill. ISBN 947-89272-0-2. US$ 39 What is the relationship between language and culture? This book explores this issue through a focus on communicative practice in the atolll society of Tokelau, situated in the South Pacific. Through ethnographic descriptions of "men's talk" and "women's talk" , what is defined as "knowledge" is placed in relief. Local attitudes towards language and aesthetics are shown to inform communicative practices, and the issue of power is addressed through a perspective that takes the social distribution of knowledge into account. Issues that bear on cultural identity, as they have emerged throughout the last decades, are shown to be intimately connected with current communicativepractices. Through an historical account of the relations between the three atolls, and of the establishment of more recent institutions, these issues are shown to be both expressive of continuity and discontinuity in relation to earlier practices. These continuities are what is referred to as "a way with words", and it is by reference to the framework represented by this "way" that the issues related to the experience of discontinuity are tackled by Tokelau people.

Perceiving Rock Art: Social and Political Perspectives 1995. 416 pp. ISBN 82-7099-239-9. NOK 474,-.
The papers presented in this volume originate from the Alta Conference on Rock Art (ACRA) which was held in Alta, North Norway, on June 19-24, 1993. The theme social and political perspectiveson rock art signals the dual identity of rock art both as a scientific source material for archaeological inquiries and as a present-day political and economicresource. As such the papers range from general overviews of research traditions in regions central torock art research, to discussions on social perspectives, application of ethnographic analogies, and the control of meanings seen from ethnic and political perspectives. The plurality of meanings, traditions and approaches expressed by the participants - from South Africa to Scandinavia, from Australia and China to America - not only reflect the manysidedness of research and researchers but also the dynamism with which the subject matter currently is pursued.

Languages and History: Japanese, Korean and Altaic. Orchid Press, 1996. 244 pp. ISBN974-89669-7-6. US$ 25 Summarizing what is known of the history and prehistory of Korean and Japanese, a problem that necessarily involves their possible genetic relationship to the Altaic (Turcic, Mongol, Tungus) languages, the author critically examines - and demonstrates that it is necessary to reject - arguments now dominant in most Western scholarship that would attribute all similarities among these languages to borrowing rather than to genetic relationship. He further argues that the assumption of a genetic relationship among the Altaic languages provides a scientifically valid hypothesis for exploring the early history of Korean and Japanese. This in turn means that the noow widely accepted truism that "Korean and Japanese cannot be Altaic languages" because "there are no Altaic languages" can no longer seriously be maintained. Korean and Japanese both possess important early written records, until now either ignored or largely misinterpreted by those who dismiss the Altaic hypothesis. The author shows that these texts, when approached with proper philological precision, bolster the Altaic hypothesis in much the same way that the discovery of Tokharian and Hittite materials earlier stimulated and clarified Indo-European historical linguistics.

Crucifying the Orient: Russian Orientalism and the Colonization of Caucasus and Central Asia. Orchid Press, 1997. xx, 344 pp, ill. ISBN 947-89373-2-1. US$ 39
The book deals primarily with two regions of the former Soviet Union: Central Asia and the Caucasus. It deals with the policies and attitudes of the Russian Governments, whether tsarist or communist, towards the annexed territories and theirpeoples. The cultures of these regions shared a spatial and temporal cohesion; they were pluralistic and multi-lingual civilizations, and their towns were great repositories of wisdom for the entire region. The pluralism of the region was destroyed by Russian colonialism, which imposed a European model on these cultures, and termed them backward and primitive. The first part of the book discusses the rise of Russian Orientalism, its specific characteristics and links with European attitudes amongst scholars, writers and administrators, all of whose prejudices determined subsequent Russian readings and interpretations of the Russian Orient. The second part of the book examines the praxis of Marxism in the 20 century towards the "national minorities", as non-Russians came to be labe led, and shows how these policies were a continuation of the tsarist policies and attitudes in building an ideal society. Edward Said in his book "Orientalism" examined European orientalism and its roots, and this book is the first comprehensive study of Russian orientalism.

The Sámi and their Land: The Sámi vs the Swedish Crown: A Study of the Legal Struggle for Improved Land Rights: The Taxed Mountains Case.1997. 213 pp, ill. ISBN 82-7099-272-0. NOK 359,-.
Rights to land and water are crucial to most land-based indigenous people in order for them to sustain their particular life styles. In modern times, claims for improved land rights are part of the agenda for indigenous people, both in the legal and the political arenas of the nation states to which they belong. These claims relate to basic features of international law, but they also reflect legal pluralistic strategy; legal arguments in court merge national law with customary law and international law. Actualizing and pursuing these claims can be seen as ethnopolitical activity, not just law, and are essentialfor cultural survival. This monograph is an in-depth analysis of a unique case, in which the Sámi confronted the Swedish Crown on the issue of ownership rights to the Taxed Mountains in the South Sámi region in Sweden (1966-1 981). The author followed the case at close range for the 15 years it lasted and has spentanother 15 years following up the consequences of this huge and extensive case. The case is a unique and very significant event in Sámi cultural history. Comparison is made with recent legal confrontationsin the northern Fourth World to place it in a broader perspective.

The Coptic Orthodox Church in Egypt represents the largest Christian community in the Middle East today, but few works have appeared that discuss the situation of the contemporary Church. The Coptic Church has preserved ancient Christian traditions in a unique way. Not only has it survived centuries of living in a pre-dominantly Muslim environment, but it has also managed to renew itself continuously during its long history. This book covers for the first time the most important aspects of the contemporary Coptic. Orthodox Church in Egypt as well as in the diaspora,bringing together new knowledge which would otherwise remain largely inaccessible except to a small number of specialists.

US$ 39 (B-99).
This book is about cultural translation and comparison - between the seemingly incomparable:Hinduism and Capitalism. Some might object that they cannot be compared since Hinduism refers to a system of beliefs and ritual practices, while Capitalism is an economic system. Hinduism, though undoubtedly first and foremost a religion, is also the institution which organizes Hindu society and economy. Capitalism is also a culture: a system of beliefs, ideas, values and practices which influences modern lifestyles. Both Hinduism and Capitalism can be conceived as sociocultural systems which influence the ways people think, feel and communicate. Such a comparative exercise brings forth apparently opposite worlds. This is conceptualised inthe present work through opposites like action/inaction, individualism/collectivism, economics/ spiritualism, the contemplative yogi versus the ever active man. Yet, Capitalism and Hinduism share a common reference point in the concepts of action (karma) and structure (dharma). It is argued that these concepts provide a particularlyfertile 'bridgehead' for cultural translation and comparison between Hinduism and Capitalism. BothHindu and Western traditions have produced sophisticated theories of action and how action relates to 'agency' and 'structure.' The concept of the duality of action and structure is implicit in the karma/dharma teachings which portray the essence of Hinduism.
