Method and perspective in anthropology; papers in honor of Wilson D. Wallis by Robert F Spencer( Book )

Method and Perspective in Anthropology was first published in 1954. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions. The boundaries and goals of anthropology are changing and expanding as scholars recognize and pursue wider opportunities for achieving an understanding of the cultural development of man. The range of interests of the discipline as shown in this book embodies such varied fields as archaeology, human geography, linguistics, and the organization of society. With the broadening and deepening of these concerns, those working and studying in the various areas of anthropology have sought more concise methods and more adequate techniques with which to meet increasingly complex problems. This volume of papers, published in honor of a scholar who has himself devoted much effort to the refinement of anthropological methods, represents a long step forward toward the solution of some of the problems of methodology. The contributors are outstanding scholars in cultural anthropology, ethnology, and related fields. The first twelve papers, by as many different authors, present discussions of specific aspects of ethnography, cultural anthropology, prehistory, linguistics, ethnogeography, and sociology. The final paper, by Alfred L. Kroeber, provides a critical summary of the preceding papers. All twelve of the writers answer, in their own way, the questions of how they derive their data, and how they establish their theoretical frame of reference. The contributors are, in addition to Professor Kroeber, Melville J. Herskovits, Sister M. Inez Hilger, Elizabeth Colson, David G. Mandelbaum, Allan R. Holmberg, Robert F. Spencer, Ralph Linton, Erwin H. Ackerknecht, Lloyd A. Wilford, Joseph H. Greenberg, Omer C. Stewart, and Raymond V. Bowers

Vietnamese : AM11( )

in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection about the Vietnamese consists of 84 documents, 33 in English and 51 translations from the French, that cover all three main areas culturally recognized by the Vietnamese as the Northern (Bac Bo), Central (Trung Bo), and Southern (Nam Bo) regions, with Hanoi, Hue, and Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon), serving as the main cities of each of the three regions. The cultural data are diverse, but generally the best overall coverage of Vietnamese ethnography will be found in Gourou, Huard, Cima, and supplemented with brief summaries in Landes and in Luro. Other major ethnographic topics discussed include community studies, gender studies with the emphasis on women's roles and status in Vietnamese society, law and legal norms, economics, and features of Vietnamese religion. Information on the French colonial period in Vietnam is given specific attention in Thompson, Bonhomme, Dumarest, and Rouilly. Medicine and medical care are topics discussed in: Jeanselme, Gammeltoft, and Ladinsky. Discussions on social change are given special attention by Dang, Hickey, Kleinen, Luong, and Kerkvliet. Data on politics and political development are found in Hammer, Michaud, and Cima

Klamath NR10( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Klamath are Native Americans living in southwestern Oregon. This file consists of 11 documents. The focus of the literature is on tribal origins, traditional culture, social change, and mythology. The earliest by Gatschet is based on field work carried out in 1877 and includes information on geography, settlements, folklore, language, and mythology. Spier produced a "memory ethnography" based on informant recollections of ca. 1860 tribal life. He also compared Klamath cultural traits with those of neighboring groups in order to establish Klamath origins and affiliations. Stern wrote about the history, culture, and politics of the Klamath reservation and a study of Klamath myths and their narration. Barker also recorded Klamath mythology and life histories. Other articles in the file include studies of Klamath childhood and socialization (Pearsall), material culture (Barrett), personality and acculturation (Clifton and Levine), comparative religion (Spencer), and songs and their interpretation (Weaver)
