  • Act Your Age!by Frank Topping

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 46.95

    Are our current ways of talking about "the problem of adolescence" really that different than those of past generations? For the past decade, Act Your Age! has provided a provocative and now classic analysis of the accepted ways of viewing teens. By employing a groundbreaking "history of the present" methodology that resists traditional chronology,... more...

  • American Anthropology, 1971-1995by American Anthropological Association; Regna Darnell

    University of Nebraska Press 2002; US$ 45.00

    American anthropology in the late twentieth century interrogated and depicted the worlds of others, past and present, in subtle and incisive ways while increasingly questioning its own authority to do so. Marxist, symbolic, and structuralist thought shaped the fieldwork and conclusions of many researchers around the globe. Practicing anthropology... more...

  • Ancient Chiefdoms of the Tombigbeeby John H. Blitz

    University of Alabama Press 2009; US$ 29.95

    A Dan Josselyn Memorial Publication Within the last 50 years archaeologists have discovered that around the 10th century A.D., native southeastern peoples began a process of cultural change far more complex than anything that had occurred previously. These late prehistoric societies—known as Mississippian—have come to be regarded... more...

  • An Anthropological Critique of Developmentby Mark Hobart

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 55.95

    Questioning the utopian image of western knowledge as a uniquely successful achievement in its application to economic and social development, this provocative volume, the latest in the EIDOS series, argues that it is unacceptable to dismiss problems encountered by development projects as the inadequate implementation of knowledge. Rather, it suggests... more...

  • Anthropology and Antihumanism in Imperial Germanyby Andrew Zimmerman

    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 30.00

    With the rise of imperialism, the centuries-old European tradition of humanist scholarship as the key to understanding the world was jeopardized. Nowhere was this more true than in nineteenth-century Germany. It was there, Andrew Zimmerman argues, that the battle lines of today's "culture wars" were first drawn when anthropology challenged humanism... more...

  • The Anthropology of Cultural Performanceby J. Lowell Lewis

    Palgrave Macmillan 2013; US$ 85.00

    Contemporary life in most nation-states is not truly cultural, but rather "culture-like," especially in large-scale societies. Beginning with a distinction between special events and everyday life, Lewis examines fundamental events including play, ritual, work, and carnival and connects personal embodied habits and large-scale cultural practices. more...

  • Archaeological Site Museums in Latin Americaby Helaine Silverman

    UPF 2006; US$ 44.95

    This handbook for archaeologists and heritage managers can readily be incorporated into museum, heritage, and ethics courses, and actual field strategies. more...

  • Arts, Sciences, and Economicsby Tönu Puu

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 149.00

    Deals with economic aspects of changing attitudes in arts and sciences. This book emphasizes the effects of the public good character of culture, along with the very long production period and lifetime for its products, as both contribute to the failure of normal market solutions. more...

  • Becoming Sinnersby Joel Robbins

    University of California Press 2004; US$ 15.95

    In a world of swift and sweeping cultural transformations, few have seen changes as rapid and dramatic as those experienced by the Urapmin of Papua New Guinea in the last four decades. A remote people never directly "missionized," the Urapmin began in the 1960s to send young men to study with Baptist missionaries living among neighboring communities.... more...
