Written in an extremely clear and vivid style, the book makes excellent reading for courses on environmental anthropology, neoliberalism and Papua New Guinea. It critically examines the seemingly well meaning certification schemes, which raise questions among both academics and consumers alike, and this should allow for a wide-based readership. I recently completed two new books. Part memoir of my thirty years of linguistic anthropological work in Papua New Guinea, and part narrative of how a language becomes abandoned, A Death in the Rainforest: how a language and a way of life came to an end in Papua New Guinea, was published in June by Algonquin Books, to very positive reviews.

Book description: Through the sharing of food, people feel entitled to inquire into one another’s lives and ponder one another’s states in relation to their foodways. This in-depth study focuses on the Bosmun of Daiden, a Ramu River people in an under-represented area in the ethnography of Papua New Guinea. Few works of anthropology have taken that insight more seriously than Anthony Pickles’ Money Games. In this highly original book the author uses gambling in a variety of forms as an analytic through which local cultural forms, economic assumptions, cultural evaluations, and social relations become visible and meaningful in Papua New Guinea (PNG).

— Gabriela Elisa Morales, Social Anthropology “Scholars of Papua New Guinea and Melanesia will naturally welcome this extraordinary book. It should also be read by those with an interest in ontology, post-colonial science, the anthropology of infrastructure, and the anthropology of the state." — Barbara Andersen, Anthropological Quarterly.   "The genius of this book is the way the author weaves anthropological theory, ethnographic description, mission history, and theological awareness to help readers understand the sociolinguistic complexities that contribute to the development of a contemporary church in Papua New Guinea [a] cogent, well written, and argued ethnography.".
