Political systems of Highland Burma : a study of Kachin social structure by E. R Leach( Book )

126 editions published between 1954 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For the first time a modern type of sociological analysis has been applied to the rich ethnographic material of northern Southeast Asia in this book. While making full use of the techniques which social anthropologists had developed during the previous decade, mainly on the basis of African materials, this book marked a departure from then current orthodoxies and has come to be recognized as constituting an outstanding development in the field of anthropological theory."--Back cover
Culture & communication : the logic by which symbols are connected : an introduction to the use of structuralist analysis in social anthropology by E. R Leach( Book )

53 editions published between 1976 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edmund Leach's book investigates the writings of 'structuralists,' and their different theories: the general incest theory and of animal sacrifice. This book is designed for the use of teaching undergraduates in anthropology, linguistics, literary studies, philosophy and related disciplines faced with structuralist argument. It provides the prolegomena necessary to understand the final chapter of Levi-Strauss's massive four-volume Mythologiques. Some prior knowledge of anthropological literature is useful but not essential. The principal ethnographic source is the Book of Leviticus; this guide should help anyone who is trying to grasp the essentials of 'seminology' - the general theory of how signs and symbols come to convey meaning. The author's core thesis is that: 'the indices in non-verbal communication systems, like the sound elements in spoken language, do not have meaning as isolates, but only as members of set'; the book's special merit is that it makes this kind of jargon comprehensible in terms of our everyday experience

Estructuralismo, mito y totemismo( )

6 editions published between 1970 and 2004 in Spanish and English and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Designed to provoke controversy, the papers in this volume concentrate on two main themes: the study of myth and totemism. Starting with an English translation of La Geste d'Asdiwal, which is widely considered to be the most brilliant of all of Lévi-Strauss's shorter expositions of his technique of myth analysis, the volume also contains criticism of this essay. The second part of the volume discusses how far Lévi-Strauss's treatment of totemism as a system of category formation can be correlated with the facts that an ethnographer encounters in the field. First published in 1967

Elites in South Asia by E. R Leach( Book )

14 editions published between 1970 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study of elitism particularly concerned with Indian elites in the context of British influence and its aftermath. The problems delineated are by no means peculiar to the Indian subcontinent. Nearly all the developing countries of contemporary Asia, Africa and Latin America are entangled with their post-colonial heritage and the history of political elitism in all these countries has been similar. The papers consider who were members of the elites, in the sense of 'men at the top'. They enquire how they got there, how they continued to recruit themselves and what was their relationship with the British. The contributors, sociologists, economists, anthropologists, political scientists and historians, present each other with forms of evidence which are unfamiliar and, in sum, result in a study which destroys many of the conventional clichés of colonial historians.--Publisher description
