  • Aboriginal Pathwaysby John Gladstone Steele

    University of Queensland Press 2015; US$ 12.99

    The first European chroniclers of Indigenous Culture in Australia looked for the sensational, often neglecting its more significant features. In his fourth book on Queensland's early history, J. G. Steele corrects this imbalance with a detailed account of the Indigenous people of the subtropical coast at the time of their earliest contact with white... more...

  • About the Houseby Janet Carsten; Stephen Hugh-Jones

    Cambridge University Press 1995; US$ 44.00

    The domestic unit is inseparable from its homestead, and the 'house', at once a physical place and a social unit, is often also a unit of production and consumption, a cult group, and even a political faction. Inspired by Lévi-Strauss's suggestion that the multi-functional noble houses of medieval Europe were simply the best-known examples of a widespread... more...

  • Adaptationsby Deborah Cartmell; Imelda Whelehan

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 41.95

    Adaptations considers the theoretical and practical difficulties surrounding the translation of a text into film, and the reverse process; the novelisation of films. Through three sets of case studies, the contributors examine the key debates surrounding adaptations: whether screen versions of literary classics can be faithful to the text; if something... more...

    Langaa RPCIG 2014; US$ 29.95

    African Cultures, Memory and Space is an impeccable volume that powerfully grapples with a gamut of cultural heritage issues, challenges and problems from a vista of inter- and multi-disciplinary approach.

  • African Historical Archaeologiesby Andrew M. Reid; Paul J. Lane

    Springer US 2014; US$ 179.00

    Traditionally, Historical Archaeology has had a North American or European stance, focusing on the interplay between historical documents and the archaeological record. For Africa, with its non-traditional historical sources, this interplay is not as applicable. These sources also inform the period of contact with Europeans, during which the shape... more...

  • Africa?s Anthropological Dictionary on Love and Understandingby Ateh-Afac Fossungu

    Langaa RPCIG 2013; US$ 20.90

    This book deals with love, marriage/family, and witchcraft issues but its central question remains that of whether love without understanding is love. Tackling love from much broader and interdisciplinary angles than just the love-making that most love stories usually focus on, it advances the duo of love and understanding as the foundation of any... more...

  • Age Class Systemsby Bernardo Bernardi; David I. Kertzer

    Cambridge University Press 1985; US$ 43.00

  • America's Game(s)by Benjamin Eastman; Michael Ralph; Sean Brown

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    This insightful volume considers how to locate America in the sporting world: in the traditions and rituals of a national pastime or in the baseball academies run by American professional teams in the Dominican Republic? With the athletes that carry a flag in Olympic ceremonies or among the executives in the boardrooms of Nike? The contributors argue... more...
