In 1898 a team from the University of Cambridge set out for the Torres Strait. Led by A. C. Haddon, their goal was a comprehensive anthropological study embracing ethnology, physical anthropology, psychology, linguistics, sociology, and ethnomusicology. The nine interdisciplinary essays in this centenary volume offer new ways of looking at and situating the Expedition's work in historical and intellectual debates. Today, the results of the Expedition have a contemporary relevance for anthropology and for the Torres Strait Islanders.
