The anthropological lens : harsh light, soft focus by James L Peacock( )

49 editions published between 1986 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 2,760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anthropology is a complex, wide-ranging, and ever-changing field. This clear, coherent, and well crafted book is a revised version of a very successful text first published in 1986, designed to supplement standard textbooks and monographs. It covers the central concepts, distinctive methodologies and philosophical as well as practical issues of cultural anthropology, and it is accessible to the anthropological novice while being of value to the professional. The updated version covers current issues in cultural anthropology, and includes topics such as globalization, gender, post-modernism and public issues, and reflects changes in perspective and language."--Jacket
Grounded globalism : how the U.S. South embraces the world by James L Peacock( )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 1,820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Grounded Globalism' is a study of globalism's impact on a region legendarily resistant to change that draws on diverse perspectives. It looks at the South to develop the idea of 'grounded globalism' in which abstract global forces and local cultures rooted in history and place reverberate against each other
Purifying the faith : the Muhammadijah movement in Indonesian Islam by James L Peacock( )

30 editions published between 1977 and 2019 in English and Indonesian and held by 1,293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Muhammadijah (or Muhammadiyah) movement was founded by Ahmad Dahlan in 1912 and evolved to emphasize religious and secular education, personal moral responsibility, and a tolerance for other faiths. It is the second largest Islamic organization in Indonesia with an estimated 30 million followers. In 1970, James L. Peacock spent eight months in Indonesia immersing himself in the thinking, religious practice, and daily lives of Muhammadijah followers. Published in 1978, this historical and ethnographic study was one of the first books about this major Islamic reform movement and is considered an insightful and relevant work to this day

7 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Looking beyond broad theories of globalization, this volume examines the specific effects of globalizing forces on the southern United States. Eighteen essays approach globalization from a variety of perspectives, addressing relations between global and local communities; immigration, particularly of Latinos and Asians; local industry in a time of globalization; power and confrontation between rural and urban worlds; race, ethnicity, and organizing for social justice; and the assimilation of foreign-born professionals."--BOOK JACKET

Identity matters : ethnic and sectarian conflict by James L Peacock( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In response to the attacks of September 11, 2001 and war in Afghanistan, the Fulbright New Century Scholars program brought together social scientists from around the world to study sectarian, ethnic, and cultural conflict within and across national borders. As one result of their year of intense discussion, this book examines the roots of collective violence -- and the measures taken to avoid it -- in Burma (Myanmar), China, Germany, Pakistan, Senegal, Singapore, Thailand, Tibet, Ukraine, Southeast Asia, and Western Europe." "Case studies and theoretical essays introduce the basic principles necessary to identify and explain the symbols and practices each unique human group holds sacred or inalienable. The authors apply the methods of political science, social psychology, anthropology, journalism, and educational research. They build on the insights of Gordon Allport, Charles Taylor, and Max Weber to describe and analyze the patterns of behavior that social groups worldwide use to maintain their identities." "Written to inform the general reader and communicate across disciplinary boundaries, this important and timely volume demonstrates ways of understanding, predicting and coping with ethnic and sectarian violence."--Book jacket

Effects of simulated artificial gravity on human performance by James A Green( Book )

5 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ability of test subjects to perform operational type tasks was evaluated at rotational rates to 6 rpm and radii to 78 ft (24 m). The tasks included fine motor activity, mental operations, postural equilibrium, cargo handling, radial and tangential locomotion. Performance data indicate that 6 rpm presents a physiological limit at radii to 75 ft (23 m). Radial locomotion was not found to produce excessive adverse stimuli, and tangential locomotion was readily accomplished at walking rates of 2 of 4.8 ft/s (.6 to 1.4 m/s). The absence of vision dramatically reduced an individual's postural equilibrium during rotation. The use of selected anti-motion pharmaceuticals had, generally, a positive effect upon psychomotor performance at 6 rpm, but did not prove to be a panacea for the adverse effects of rotation at this rate
