Robert Wood Williamson (1856-1932) was a British solicitor and anthropologist who worked extensively in New Guinea and Polynesia. Originally published in 1937, this book was produced in edited form following an investigation of posthumous manuscripts arranged by Williamson's executors in 1935. The text presents a detailed account of religious and mythical structures in Central Polynesia and their relationship with the social organization of indigenous cultures. A detailed bibliography and textual notes are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the Central Polynesian islands and the historical development of anthropology.
