Privilege Ceremonials in Tikopia). In this second account of 'privilege ceremonials,' Firth adds material gathered during his second field trip to Tikopia. Comparisons are made between the functions of these rites in 1929 and in 1952. Firth includes a description of one ceremony which was not dealt with in the earlier article.
