The author has painted a picture of the historical circumstances leading up to and influencing the first incursion of professional ethnographers into the Papua New Guinea Highlands. The fieldworkers of the 1950s in the Highlands provided a rich array of concerns for those who entered the region subsequently, and the vitality of their interests is shown by the fact that many of these themes are still important today. This chapter shows the legacy of these early fieldworkers to those who immediately followed them, reviews something of the politics and social climate of those times, and relates the analytical concerns of the early fieldworkers to themes that are current today. It looks first at the legacy of ideas in the 1960s and through to the early 1970s.
