Malinowski é um dos grandes nomes da Antropologia. Neste livro ele relata a sua pesquisa de campo, na qual conviveu com os melanésios.
Podemos perceber os traços marcantes do direito primitivo, como a religiosidade e a crença em totens e tabus.
Marcelo Reis
Malinowski tries to understand the psychological trends in Trobriand communities that makes law and order work without the State apparatus. Sometimes the reader may find that all things fit in the scheme, perhaps because this volume is too short (about a hundred pages) if compared with other ethnological works.

Anyone sipping tea and wearing a bonnet should read this book. It's worthwhile to remember we are physically identical to humans we would call savages, monsters, jerks.

Bronisław Kasper Malinowski (IPA: [ˌmaliˈnɔfski]; April 7, 1884 – May 16, 1942) was a Polish anthropologist widely considered to be one of the most important anthropologists of the twentieth century because of his pioneering work on ethnographic fieldwork, with which he also gave a major contribution to the study of Melanesia, and the study of reciprocity.
