In search of the primitive; a critique of civilization by Stanley Diamond( Book )

27 editions published between 1974 and 2018 in English and held by 873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anthropology is a kind of debate between human possibilities -- a dialectical movement between the anthropologist as a modern man and the primitive peoples he studies. 'In search of the primitive' is a tough-minded book containing chapters ranging from encounters in the field to essays on the nature of law, schizophrenia and civilization, and the evolution of the work of Claude Lévi-Strauss. Above all it is reflective and self-critical, critical of the discipline of anthropology and of the civilization that produced that discipline. Diamond views the anthropologist who refuses to become a searching critic of their own civilizations as not merely irresponsible, but a tool of Western civilization. He rejects the associations which have been made in the ideology of our civilization, consciously or unconsciously, between Western dominance and progress, imperialism and evolution, evolution and progress." --

Consuming the American landscape by John Ganis( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Ganis has chronicled the effects of the development and extraction industries in every region of the United States over almost two decades. These are disturbing images - desolate strip mines, clear-cut forests, industrial parks, landfill sites and terrains flattened for housing developments - a thesaurus of America's 'civilized' incursions into the wildness of nature, a charting of debris-strewn topographies, and a cogent report on the abdication of any reverence towards the land." "The introductory essay, by Robert Sobieszek of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, gives an overview of historical responses to the American landscape and contextualises the work. Poems that resulted from a collaboration between Ganis and the late anthropologist and poet Stanley Diamond add a further dimension. There is also an afterword by George Thompson, Director of The Center for American Places."--Dust Jacket
