In this remarkable ethnography, Rupert Stasch takes us to the lowlands of West Papua and into the lives of people who have built a social world out of their relationships with strange and potentially dangerous others. The Korowai are classic inhabitants of the "savage slot," still dogged by their designation as Stone Age primitives. Instead of flipping the script and arguing that the Korowai are just like everyone else, Stasch draws far-reaching lessons from the particularities of Korowai life.

In his book, Rupert Stasch sets out to counter the notions both of social relations as based on pure identication and of tribal societies as being based on such relations. It is one thing to say social relationships among the Korowai are conceptualised rst of all through notions of otherness, but Stasch very convincingly sets out to study how and through what media social relationships are enacted, thus giving his study concrete points of departure into a very abstract topic. Korowai residential patterns constitute one of these media of relationships with which Stasch begins his analysis.
