What represents Melanesian art today? Is there modern Melanesian art? Who are the artists? What are the subjects of their art? Art and Life in Melanesia is timely in its exploration of Melanesian artists and their voices, providing an important juncture for many in the region and beyond to take stock of what is happening in Melanesian art. The thirteen chapters are linked essays premised around major cultural themes including Kastom, Christianity, Indigenisation and Globalisation, Markets, Festivals, Diasporas, Urban Culture and Politics. Each theme focuses on ideas, issues and some specific arts practices, drawing examples from a few localities. Not every country is addressed under each theme, an approach that provides the reader with substantive country-specific information. Research for this book was supported by the University of Queensland. 'Melanesia gets a lot of attention in Australia on matters political, economic and social under the tag of failed states but there has been very little focus on the cultural side of things. Susan has been an ardent supporter and campaigner for arts in Melanesia and a book by her is a worthy publication supporting some of the quality things that are happening in the region.' Dr Michael Mel University of Goroka, PNG 'Art and Life in Melanesia is based on many years of research in the area and will be an extremely welcome and timely addition to the publishing on this subject. Susan s research and writing is of the highest quality and she has earned the respect of the field through her consistent work on contemporary Pacific arts, and this book is enhanced by the fact that she has the cooperation of many key players who assisted her with putting it together.' Stephanie Britton Executive Editor Artlink 'Susan Cochrane s knowledge of her area is well recognized and highly esteemed among her colleagues, and she is also capable of presenting information in a way that is immediate and engaging with the broadest of audiences. Her combination of stringent academic skills, passion for her subject matter and a high level of communication offer a combination which promises to make a first rate publication for the broad public as well as the academic and art worlds.' Ass. Prof. Pat Hoffie Queensland College of Art Griffith University
