First published in 1982, Christopher A. Gregory's Gifts and commodities is one of the undisputed classics of economic anthropology. The book spurred intense debates about gifts and gifting, value, exchange, and the place of political economy in anthropology. Gifts and commodities is, at once, a critique of neoclassical economics and development theory, a critical history of colonial Papua New Guinea, and a comparative ethnography of exchange in Melanesian societies. This new edition, with a foreword by anthropologist Marilyn Strathern, offers a new generation of scholars a fresh opportunity to revisit this classic in light of contemporary socio-economic issues: from the global proliferation of neoliberal economic reforms to the chorus of activism protesting the moral and ideological grounds of capitalism.
