  • Negotiating Territorialityby Allan Charles Dawson; Laura Zanotti; Ismael Vaccaro

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 125.00

    This edited collection disrupts dominant narratives about space, states, and borders, bringing comparative ethnographic and geographic scholarship in conversation with one another to illuminate the varied ways in which space becomes socialized via political, economic, and cognitive appropriation. Societies must, first and foremost, do more than wrangle... more...

  • Social Geographiesby Gill Valentine

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 73.95

    Most social geography undergraduate textbooks are structured around different social categories, splintering the discussion of gender, class, race and increasingly now sexuality and disability, into separate chapters. This has the effect, firstly, of making social relations rather than space (the raison d'etre of human geography) the focus of undergraduate... more...

  • Ethnographies of Youth and Temporalityby Anne Line Dalsgard; Martin Frederiksen; Susanne Hojlund; Lotte Meinert; Michael G. Flaherty

    Temple University Press 2014; US$ 85.50

    As we experience and manipulate time—be it as boredom or impatience—it becomes an object: something materialized and social, something that affects perception, or something that may motivate reconsideration and change. The editors and contributors to this important new book, Ethnographies of Youth and Temporality, have provided a diverse... more...

  • Incest Avoidance and the Incest Taboosby Arthur Wolf

    Stanford University Press 2014; US$ 12.99

    Why do most people never have sex with close relatives? And why do they disapprove of other people doing so? Incest Avoidance and Incest Taboos investigates our human inclination to avoid incest and the powerful taboo against incest found in all societies. Both subjects stir strong feelings and vigorous arguments within and beyond academic circles.... more...

  • Three Styles in the Study of Kinshipby J.A. Barnes

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 44.95

    The study of kinship is a fundamental part of the study and the practice of social anthropology. This volume examines the work of three distinguished anthropologists that bear on kinship and determines what theoretical models are implicit in their writings and assesses to what extent their claims have been validated. The anthropologists studied are... more...

  • Elementary Structures Reconsideredby Francis Korn

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 280.00

    Constituting a measured but devastating critique of LÚvi-Strauss's work on kinship systems, this book deals with prescriptive forms of social classification and had far-reaching implications for anthropological theory when it was originally published. Originally published in 1973. more...

  • The Family Estate in Africaby Robert F. Gray; P.H. Gulliver

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 325.00
