"One Discipline, Four Ways" offers the first book-length introduction to the history of each of the four major traditions in anthropology-British, German, French, and American. The result of lectures given by distinguished anthropologists Fredrik Barth, Andre Gingrich, Robert Parkin, and Sydel Silverman to mark the foundation of the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology in Halle, Germany, this volume not only traces the development of each tradition but considers their impact on one another and assesses their future potentials.
Moving from Edward Burnett Tylor all the way through the development of modern fieldwork, Barth reveals the repressive tendencies that prevented Britain from developing a variety of anthropological practices until the late 1960s. Gingrich, meanwhile, articulates the development of anthropology in German, paying particular attention to the Nazi period, of which surprisingly little analysis has been offered until now. Parkin then assesses the French tradition and, in particular, its separation of theory and ethnographic practice. Finally, Silverman traces the formative influence of Franz Boas, the expansion of the discipline after World War II, and the "fault lines" and promises of contemporary anthropology in the United States.

Balinese Worlds (Paperback, New): Fredrik Barth Balinese Worlds (Paperback, New)
Fredrik Barth
R1,015 Discovery Miles 10 150 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

In "Balinese Worlds," Fredrik Barth proposes a new model for anthropological analysis of complex civilizations that is based on a fresh, synthetic account of culture and society in North Bali and one that takes full notice of individual creativity in shaping the contours of this dynamic culture.
In this detailed ethnography of the Northern district of Buleleng, Barth rejects mainstream anthropological generalizations of Bali as a cultural system of carefully articulated parts. Instead--drawing on many sources, including the sociology of knowledge, interactional analysis, postmodern thought, and his own exceptionally varied field experience--Barth presents a new model that actually generates variation. Barth's innovative analysis of Balinese life highlights both the constructive and the disorganizing effects of individual action, the constant flux of interpretation, and the powerful interaction of memory and social relationships, and knowledge as a cultural resource.
"Balinese Worlds" is a unique contribution not only to Balinese studies but also to the theory and methods of the anthropology of complex societies.

Violence and Belonging - Land, Love and Lethal Conflict in the North-west Frontier Province of Pakistan (Paperback): Are J.... Violence and Belonging - Land, Love and Lethal Conflict in the North-west Frontier Province of Pakistan (Paperback)
Are J. Knudsen; Introduction by Fredrik Barth
R583 Discovery Miles 5 830 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Most studies of violence in the Middle East and South Asia come from the perspective of honour or political violence. By contrast, this important study offers a new perspective on its causes in Pakistan's unruly North-West Frontier Province, challenging stereotyped images of a region and people miscast as extremist and militant. Based on an in-depth study of local conflicts, the book sheds light on the complexities of violence, not only at the structural or systemic level, but also as experienced by the men involved in lethal conflict.In this way, the book provides a subjective and experiential approach to violence that is applicable beyond the field locality and relevant for advancing the study of violence in the Middle East and South Asia. 'We should make the best possible use of this analysis: for its daring perspectives, extreme empirical findings, and wide relevance. It deserves a very careful reading for its contributions to so many aspects of our understanding of honour, politics and human society' - Fredrik Barth.

Cosmologies in the Making - A Generative Approach to Cultural Variation in Inner New Guinea (Paperback, New Ed): Fredrik Barth Cosmologies in the Making - A Generative Approach to Cultural Variation in Inner New Guinea (Paperback, New Ed)
Fredrik Barth
R899 Discovery Miles 8 990 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

In examining the changes that have taken place in the secret cosmological lore transmitted in male initiation ceremonies among the Mountain Ok of Inner New Guinea, this book offers a new way of explaining how cultural change occurs. Professor Barth focuses on accounting for the local variations in cosmological traditions that exist among the Ok people, who otherwise share largely similar cultures. Rejecting existing anthropological theory as inadequate for explaining this, Professor Barth constructs a new model of the mechanisms of cultural change, emphasizing the role that individual creativity plays in it, and maintaining that cosmologies can be adequately understood only if they are regarded as knowledge in the process of communication, rather than as fixed bodies of belief.
