|Abstract:||Before the Second World War, relatively few American anthropologists
had worked in the Pacific, and Micronesia was virtually unknown.
After the war, the U.S. Navy sponsored the Coordinated Investigation of
Micronesian Anthropology, the largest research project in the history of the discipline.
Several CIMA participants became major figures, and they inspired
substantial further work in the region. In this paper research trends in Micronesia
during the past half century are discussed and suggestions for the future
