Cheap meat. Flap food nations in the pacific islands
Berkeley/ Los Angeles / London : University of California Press , 2010. - 224 p.


Résumé : "Cheap Meat" follows the controversial trade in inexpensive fatty cuts of lamb or mutton, called 'flaps', from the farms of New Zealand and Australia to their primary markets in the Pacific islands of Papua New Guinea, Tonga, and Fiji. Deborah Gewertz and Frederick Errington address the evolution of the meat trade itself along with the changing practices of exchange in Papua New Guinea. They show that flaps - which are taken from the animals' bellies and are often 50 per cent fat - are not mere market transactions but evidence of the social nature of nutrition policies, illustrating and reinforcing Pacific Islanders' presumed second-class status relative to the white populations of Australia and New Zealand.
