Comparative Austronesian Series

The Comparative Austronesian Series began as the publications of an interdisciplinary project involving anthropologists, linguists and archaeologists committed to the comparative study of the Austronesian-speaking populations of the world whose distribution extends from Taiwan to Timor, and from Madagascar to Easter Island. The series now continues and extends the impetus of the initial project focusing on a variety of topics of comparative significance.
