Abstract:

Through an ethnographically based study of local communicative practices in
the Pacific atoll society of Tokelau, the book adds to our understanding of
how systems of governance are constituted by minute acts of social
interaction, and are informed by our conceptions of the nature of sociality.
It combines a social anthropological approach to postcolonial studies in which
local and trans-national communicative practices related to governance and
conflict management are analysed as different language games. The book offers
an experience-near approach to local modes of conflict management and patterns
of leadership, and documents how micro-level communicative practices have an
impact on macro-political processes.
