Example text

Because of this interaction and attribution of meaning, the desert islanders begin to adopt roles towards each other. For whatever reason (and it might be natural skill, it might be preference, or it might reflect what each did before arrival), it is likely that some tasks will be divided, and even when co-operation is required to complete a task, each party will habitualise his or her contribution to the task. Most jobs on the desert island could be performed by either, even though, if the routine is sufficiently habitualised, this might seem unlikely even to the parties.

In whatever way it works, it is a way of emphasising the status quo, a method of expressing the traditional inequalities and of counteracting the formation of any new ones. Since conservatism is the most important trend in a primitive society, sorcery on the whole is a beneficent agency, of enormous value for early culture. Clearly, Malinowski’s perspective is that of one who sees order as unproblematic and desirable, no matter how oppressive the powerful, wealthy and influential. It is significant that he says that because sorcery supports the vested interests, it is also supportive of law and order!

Furthermore, it is measured against a norm (which probably is alien to the Nuer) of courteous conduct that requires strangers, on first meeting, to introduce themselves by giving their names. The narrator finds that the fault in this unhappy encounter lies with Nuer character, rather than with historically specific circumstances. Yet the reader should consider that, just two pages before, Evans Pritchard has described how a government force raided a Nuer camp, ‘took hostages and threatened to take many more’.
