              Acting for Others - Relational Transformations in Papua New Guinea (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              For the Ankave of Papua New Guinea, men, unlike women, do not reach adulthood and become fathers simply by growing up and reproducing. What fathers-and by extension, men-actually areis a result of a series ofrelational transformations,operated in and byrituals in which men and wo...menboth perform complementary actions in separate spaces.Acting for Othersis a tour de force in Melanesian ethnography, gender studies, and theories of ritual. Based on years of fieldwork conducted by the authorand her husband and co-ethnographer, this book's "double view" of the Ankave ritual cycle-from women in the village and from the men in the forest-is novel, provocative, and one of the most incisive analyses of the emergence of ideas of gender in Papua New Guinea since Marilyn Strathern'sThe Gender of the Gift. At the heart of Pascale Bonnemere's argument is the idea that it is possible for genders to act for and upon one another, and to do so almost paradoxically, by limiting action through the obeying of taboos and otherrestrictions. With this first English translation by acclaimed French translator Nora Scott, accompanied by a foreword from Marilyn Strathern,Acting for Othersbrings the Ankave ritual world to new theoretical life, challenging how we think about mutual action, mutual being, and mutual life.

              In the fifteenth century, the princess Chokyi Dronma was told by leading spiritual masters that she was the embodiment of the ancient Indian tantric deity Vajravarahi, known in Tibetan as Dorje Phagmo, the Thunderbolt Female Pig. Hildegard Diemberger builds her book around the tr...anslation of the first biography of Chokyi Dronma recorded by her disciples in the wake of her death. The account reveals an extraordinary phenomenon: Chokyi Dronma not only persuaded one of the highest spiritual teachers of her era to give her full ordination but was also officially recognized as one of two principal spiritual heirs to her main master--and she went on to establish a long, influential lineage and Buddhist order herself.Diemberger offers a number of theoretical arguments about the importance of reincarnation in Tibetan society and religion; the role of biographies in establishing a lineage; the necessity for religious teachers to navigate complex networks of political and financial patronage; the cultural and social innovation linked to the revival of ancient Buddhist civilizations; and the role of women in Buddhism. Four stage-setting chapters precede the biography, and four concluding chapters discuss the establishment of the reincarnation lineage and the role of the current incarnation under Tibet's peculiarly contradictory communist system.
