Where the wild things are now : domestication reconsidered by Rebecca Cassidy( )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cultural theory has taken a 'performative turn,' shifting its focus from the textual nature of the world to how the social world is narrated, its subjects are subjected and its relations are ritually enacted." "The rise of performativity in cultural theory - spearheaded in many ways by feminist theory - has profound implications for the way we think about ehtics and politics. Indeed, as it concerns all aspects of 'difference', it reshapes the ways we think about the continuities and interruptions of social life itself." "Culture and Performance explores the development and direction of the notion of performativity. It interrogates the idea of subjectivity, the possibility of ethics and, beyond this, it explores new ways of thinking political imaginations and possibilities. It traces the implications of the concept, and assesses the critique that is emerging from a renewed interest in creativity."--BOOK JACKET

Genetic diversity and human behavior by J. N Spuhler( Book )

Genetic differences in humans, like those between individuals of any animal or plant species and those between species, are all products of the evolutionary development of the living world. These differences, with their behavioral consequences, can only be understood in the light of evolution. Our understanding of evolution, however, has itself evolved. The Darwin-Wallace theory of evolution appeared in the nineteenth century. Since then, development of evolutionary thought has gone through several stages. The contributions in this volume describe those stages. The first four decades after Darwin were dominated by studies in comparative anatomy, embryology, systematics, zoo geography, phytogeography, and paleontology, all intended to discover and examine the evidences of evolution. But the phylogenies of the animal and plant kingdoms, that is, the history of the linkages of animal and plant organisms as they change through time, were less well documented. In particular, the phylogeny of humans is still not completely known. The period following World War Two saw acceleration of activity in fields in and bordering on behavioral genetics. Research in neuroendocrinology showed that higher cortical centers could influence and be influenced by the hypothalamus, pituitary, thyroid, adrenals, and gonads. Genetic diversity in the function of these organs had obvious consequences for social and cultural behavior. The failure of some early and long-reinforced attempts at conditioning by students of comparative animal behavior showed species-specific innate behavior could not be ignored in any theory that attempts to combine psychology and anthropology. This classic volume summarizes the development of evolutionary thinking, and describes how what we know about genetic diversity links up with research on human behavior

10 editions published between 1969 and 1997 in English and held by 724 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As conflict resolution becomes increasingly important to urban and rural peoples around the globe, the value of this classic anthology of studies of process, structure, comparison, and perception of the law is acclaimed by policy makers as well as anthropologists throughout the world. The case studies include evidence from Africa, Europe, the Americas, and Oceania, and they reflect the important shift from a concern with what law is to what law does"--Publisher description
