As in the kula, so in such tournam ents of value generally, strategic skill is culturally measured by the success with which actors attem pt diversions or subversions of culturally conventionalized paths for the flow of things. T he idea of tournam ents of value is an attem pt to create a general category, following up a recent observation by Edm und Leach (1983:535) comparing the kula system to the art world in the m odern West.
