Stratagems and spoils; a social anthropology of politics by F. G Bailey( Book )

66 editions published between 1969 and 2001 in 4 languages and held by 1,078 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"F. G. Bailey's political-anthropology text is reissued here with a postscript that comments critically on the book's scope, its reception, and its uses. First published in 1969, Stratagems and Spoils captured the imagination of scholars and students with a revealing examination of principles of political competition that operate alike in "exotic" and "developed" societies. In Bailey's analysis, Swat Pathan chiefs, cosa nostra gangsters, General de Gaulle, and the Untouchables in a rural Indian village (for example) are shown employing similar strategies, both effective and ineffective, to win and hold followers while eroding the support of their opponents. Provocative and insightful. Stratagems and Spoils provides a conceptual toolkit for analyzing, in any culture, the rules that regulate political contests and that determine who will win and who will lose."--Jacket

"Bailey moves easily between fieldnotes and memory as he takes a new look at his first impressions and reflects on what he has learned. His elegant book is a powerful reassessment of anthropology's most enduring themes and debates which will imprint on the reader's mind a vivid image of a place and its people."--Jacket

14 editions published in 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The civility of indifference : on domesticating ethnicity by F. G Bailey( Book )

11 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dissolution of Yugoslavia inspired F.G. Bailey to consider the relations among ethnic groups that had seemed reconciled to living together and then broke into murderous conflicts. For his exploration of the ancient, recurring problem of ethnic strife, Bailey considers the village of Bisipara in the state of Orissa, in eastern India. Bisipara was a community in which different ethnic groups were seen as distinct breeds of people, arranged in a hierarchy of worthiness. In The Civility of Indifference, Bailey documents a case of ethnic strife that threatened the village forty years ago but did not consume it in bloodshed. The restraint, he suggests, reflected not compassion but a sense of inevitability. The people of Bisipara perceived the world in such a way that violence enacted as ethnic cleansing would have seemed to them a disastrous indulgence and a sure path to self-destruction. Their story serves as a parable of pragmatic indifference, in contrast to the fanaticism that justifies civil war. A seasoned ethnographer, the author considers the social structure of the community, examining the multiple castes with sensitivity and respect. His detailed description reveals the competing moral visions held by various groups, and his conclusions open a new perspective on ethnic violence

Political systems and the distribution of power by Michael Banton( Book )

3 editions published between 1965 and 1969 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modern political anthropology began in 1940 with the first systematic comparative studies of how primitive societies maintained law and order. The focus was on government and the presence or absence of state institutions. Recently, interest has shifted to the study of power, to examining the manipulation of political relations, and to the task of elaborating a classification of governmental systems that will throw light on the important problems for research. First published in 1965
The need for enemies : a bestiary of political forms by F. G Bailey( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Amid the escalating hostilities of today's world, F.G. Bailey returns to the state of Orissa in the eastern India of the 1950s to consider what held a diverse collection of people together and what drove them apart. The last of Bailey's books about Orissa, The Need for Enemies offers a groundlevel view of regional politics in South Asia in the years following independence. In doing so, the book analyzes political problems that are of universal concern: incivility in public life, the inescapable dilemma of duty always in tension with interests, public consensus on what is right and good giving way to a babel of inconsistent moralities, and, not least, true believers contesting realists who see virtue in compromise
God-botherers and other true believers : Gandhi, Hitler, and the religious right by F. G Bailey( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When reason fails to guide us in our everyday lives, we turn to faith, to religion; we close our minds; we reject austere reasoning. This rejection, which is a faith-based social and intellectual malignancy, has two unfortunate consequences: it blocks the way to knowledge that might enhance the quality of life and it opens the way to charlatans who exploit the faith of others. Examining two unquestionable malignancies of "the Christian Right" in present-day politics in the United States and the "secular religion" of Hitler's National Socialism, as well as the third, more complex case of Gandhi, the author asserts that we need religion, but we also need to make sure it does no harm
