As an archaeologist and anthropologist I was fascinated by the amount of study that has gone into this study. Unlike Malcolm Calleys work in the 1950s (Calley, M J C, 1959, Bandjalung Social Organisation, Unpublished thesis submitted for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy, University of Sydney.) Hoff does not attempt to recover the 'Old Rule' in depth. Instead she recounts the many and varied ways in which the Old Rule still affects daily life 70 years later and how the Bundjalung have adapted to modern times. A very interesting piece of work.
