The gender of the gift: problems with women and problems with society in Melanesia

Within the most unique and impressive synthesis but undertaken in Melanesian scholarship, Marilyn Strathern argues that gender family members were a specific casualty of unexamined assumptions held by means of Western anthropologists and feminist students alike. The e-book treats with equivalent seriousness--and with equivalent solid humor--the insights of Western social technological know-how, feminist politics, and ethnographic reporting, as a way to reconsider the illustration of Melanesian social and cultural lifestyles.

Qxp 6/30/09 6:29 PM Page 39 The Breath of History With time the Kazakh elite taught their Russian and Western partners to speak with them as equals. The greatest puzzle today, and the greatest challenge for them are the Chinese, with whom economic and political necessity dictate business should be done. However, the Kazakhs have not forgotten their Eastern origins, so the chances are really very high that the Kazakhs will not allow their dialogue with the Chinese to become a monologue. They are diplomatically silent as to their opinion of them, remembering the past but thinking about the future.

It is probable that Russia did not like this position much. To complete the picture, Kazakhstan managed to bring two more players into the Caspian game. The first was China, with which a ten-billion dollar agreement was signed and which was christened from the start as ‘the project of the century’. However, with Beijing, Kazakhstan encountered a partner that was at least as, if not more, skilled in the diplomatic and ‘multivectored’ game. The southern, or Islamic direction, always remained among the most complicated in Kazakh diplomacy.

However, in Turkish high society, Kazakhstan also saw another channel in its relations with the West and with NATO. The matter was more complex with Iran and Pakistan; Islamic states in spirit and in form. Relations with Pakistan and India required that a distinct parity be observed in the number of visits and agreements signed and in the volume of diplomatic activity conducted. There is another aspect of foreign policy which should not be overlooked and, not surprisingly, it relates to the integration of the post-Soviet space.
