In the early 21st century, intellectual and cultural resources emerge on all sides as candidates for ownership claims. And in the process some very old thinking is combined with the very new. This unique volume brings an unexpected comparative perspective to global concerns over ...'cultural property'. Drawing on collaboration with colleagues in Papua New Guinea, the authors challenge the terms of debate. As a team of anthropologists, they have worked together for three years on changing social and economic expectations. Here they turn their findings to an enquiry in some of the concepts likely to inform future debate.
