interisland hotel furniture – Lamotrek Atoll

Lamotrek Atoll and Inter-Island Socioeconomic Ties
Lamotrek Atoll and Inter-Island Socioeconomic Ties
Despite their comparative isolation from one another over many miles of ocean, the inhabitants of the many small atolls and islands of the western Pacific rarely constitute wholly independent economic, social, and political societies. The existence, methods, and reasons for this long distance interaction are disclosed in this study of the people of Lamotrek atoll in the western Caroline islands of Micronesia. It also reveals that the inter-island modes of interaction are of the same social structure as that which organizes activities of a single island within an interacting group. The author particularly delineates the complex of socioeconomic ties that unite the populations of Lamotrek, Elato, and Satawal atolls into a single social system–a system dependent upon a framework of economic and symbolic exchange between a hierarchy of ranked lineages, sub-clans, clans, and islands.

The role of inter-island air transport in the Canary Islands [An article from: Journal of Transport Geography]
This digital document is a journal article from Journal of Transport Geography, published by Elsevier in 2004. The article is delivered in HTML format and is available in your Amazon.com Media Library immediately after purchase. You can view it with any web browser.

Description:
The Canary Islands depend almost completely on air transport for the inter-island distances usually exceeding 80-100 miles. Apart from the transport of heavy cargo and that of low unit value by sea transport, the rest of the traffic tends to choose this means. What is more, tourism is developing in the main island and is highly dependent on air transport. The purpose of this paper is to analyse the quality of regular inter-island air transport in the Canary Islands, and how this is incorporated into the Trans-Insular Transport Axis as a social and economic integrating factor.
