In the Mount Hagen area of central New Guinea, warfare has been replaced since the arrival of the Europeans by a vigorous development of moka, a competitive ceremonial exchange of wealth objects. The exchanges of pigs, shells and other valuables are interpreted as acting as a bond between groups, and as a means whereby individuals, notably the big-men, can maximize their status. Professor Strathern analyses the ways in which competition between big-men actually takes place, and the effects of this competition on the overall political system.

A well run and structured system for Managing Engineering Knowledge can literally prevent engineers from having to re-invent the wheel, saving precious expert time and effort. Exploiting the capital associated with design knowledge has been shown to release considerable savings in the cost and lead times for detail design of new products. Until now there has been no common way of collecting, structuring, and formalizing the engineering knowledge associated with designs. This not only makes it hard to plan and organize the process of building knowledge based engineering applications, but also means that updating them and re-using modules is almost impossible. MOKA methodology and software tools oriented to knowledge-based engineering applications was created to fill this need. It is a practical tool to help those involved with building systems that represent knowledge, rather than a set of academic principles. Managing Engineering Knowledge is a comprehensive user guide to the methodology. Managing Engineering Knowledge caters for a wide range of people and backgrounds including general managers operating at the strategic level, project managers, engineering designers, information technologists, system modellers, and technical analysts.

Eduardo and his family live in a small town in Ecuador, not far from the Amazon rainforest. The rainforest is an important part of their lives. Each month Eduardo and his father travel by river from their town to the rainforest. There, using just a basket and a machete, they gather Brazil nuts. They are castañeros and this is how they earn their living. But the rainforest is not only important to the castañeros; it is home to many exotic species of plants, birds, and mammals, including two playful tamarins that Eduardo has named Tuki and Moka. So although it is difficult work being a castañero, Eduardo looks forward to his visits to the rainforest so he can play with his two friends. But one night, the peace of the forest is threatened by poachers, animal traffickers who illegally capture and then try to sell some of the birds and animals. Can Eduardo save his friends?
