Download or read book Beyond the Coral Sea written by Michael Moran and published by HarperCollins Publishers. This book was released on 2003 with total page 460 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: East of Java, west of Tahiti and north of the Cape York Peninsula of Australia lie the unknown paradise islands of the Coral, Solomon and Bismarck Seas. They were perhaps the last inhbited place on earth to be explored by Europeans and even today many remain largely unspoilt, despite the former presence of German, British and even Australian colonial rulers. The historic anthropological work of Bronislaw Malinowski guides the author through the seductive labyrinth of the Trobriand 'Islands of Love' and the erotic dancers of the yam festival. Darkly humorous characters, both historical and contemporary, spring vividly to life as the author steers the reader through the ricly fascinting cultures of Melanesia.
