Endorsements & Reviews-

"'In Melanesians and Missionaries', one of the best of the younger generation of missionary anthropologists demonstrates that a commitment to the missionary enterprise on the part of a solid scholar facilitates, rather than hinders, the anthropological study of a missionary topic. This is better anthropology because Dr. Whiteman is able to probe more deeply into his topic and demonstrates that he understands and appreciates both Melanesians and missionaries."

Charles H. Kraft, Professor of Anthropology, School of World Mission,
Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena
