Ahn then reconstructs a "moral economy of debt," utilizing the notion of the "gift economy" (see Marcel Mauss, Marshall Sahlins
, Pierre Bourdieu, and Jacques Derrida).
De esta manera sintetizaba Marshall Sahlins
en un prefacio a la revista Ethnohistory la metamorfosis experimentada por los estudios del encuentro colonial en la region del Pacifico en las ultimas decadas (1).

An important contribution to this discussion is the work of Marshall Sahlins
, who shows how cultural actors shape transformation processes on the basis of their own systems of meaning so that they survive, although in modified form, stressing that '[e]very reproduction of culture is an alteration, insofar as in action, the categories by which a present world is orchestrated pick up some novel empirical content' (Sahlins 1985:144; see also Robbins and Wardlow 2005:3, 5; Sahlins 2005:9-10).
The treatment of Chagnon by the American Anthropological Association (AAA) was shabby, vicious and mean, thanks to Terence Turner and Leslie Sponsel, and also Marshall Sahlins
, who recently resigned from the National Academy of Sciences in protest against Chagnon's membership, among other things.
For example, although Marshall Sahlins
played a key role both intellectually and substantively, he is referred to only three times in the text.
