Anthropology by William A Haviland( Book )

The Gulf War was a minor war as wars go, but its aftereffects have pointed out, as perhaps nothing else has, just how fragile the planet Earth is against the assaults of modern warfare and just how irreversible the damage can be. The capping of the burning oil wells in Kuwait was the greatest firefighting effort in history, and the speed with which it was accomplished led many to believe that the war damage in the Middle East had been contained. Actually, the capping was only a tiny part of the gigantic ecological problems that came in the wake of the war. Oil that spilled during the war continues to contaminate the Gulf, and efforts to recover it are limited and piecemeal. Only a small portion of the landside cleanup has been completed, and the global effects of the smoke and soot from the fires have proved to be at least as serious and as far-reaching as many prewar predictions had foretold. Some species of animals and plants found only in the Gulf region have been devastated, and the effect of the war on Kuwait's and Iraq's environment, as well as on the Gulf itself, will be as lasting as the terrible assaults on public health in Kuwait, Iraq, and Iran. Carefully documented, and relying also on firsthand information, this book presents a powerful case against war as an option in the modern age

"Excavations in Residential Areas of Tikal—Nonelite Groups Without Shrines is a two-volume presentation of the excavations carried out in and near small residential structures at Tikal, Guatemala, beginning in 1961. These reports show that Tikal was more than a ceremonial center; in addition to its numerous temples, the great Maya city was home to a large population of people. These volumes [Tikal report 20A-B] look at the residential structures themselves as well as domestic artifacts such as burials, ceramic test pits, chultuns."--

Talking about people : readings in contemporary cultural anthropology by William A Haviland( Book )

22 editions published between 1990 and 2006 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do people learn and experience their culture? How do people make a living? What does it mean to be in a family? How do we make sense of peoples' beliefs and ritual practices? In exploring questions such as these, this cultural anthropology reader focuses on contemporary global concerns and includes a significant number of articles by authors from outside the United States. A dynamic development in the fourth edition is the inclusion of "Anthropology and Public Debate" sections, in which opposing anthropological arguments on current hot topics are featured. In addition, "Doing Fieldwork" essays consider the nature and dilemmas of fieldwork, the changing status of the field, the nature of anthropological learning in the field, and ethical issues and dilemmas. - Publisher

Canoe indians of the down east Maine by William A Haviland( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1604, when Frenchmen landed on Saint Croix Island, they were far from the first people to walk along its shores. For thousands of years, Etchemins--whose descendants were members of the Wabanaki Confederacy--had lived, loved and labored in Down East Maine. Bound together with neighboring people, all of whom relied heavily on canoes for transportation, trade and survival, each group still maintained its own unique cultures and customs. After the French arrived, they faced unspeakable hardships, from "the Great Dying," when disease killed up to 90 percent of coastal populations, to centuries of discrimination. Yet they never abandoned Ketakamigwa, their homeland. In this book, anthropologist William Haviland relates the history of hardship and survival endured by the natives of the Down East coast and how they have maintained their way of life over the past four hundred years

Essence of anthropology( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The video for this lesson explains the four fields of anthropology, defines the concept of holism, and describes how anthropologists approach their subject matter from a holistic and comparative cross-cultural perspective in order to reach the broadest and most inclusive conclusions possible on their subject. Each field, cultural, physical (biological), linguistic anthropology, and archaeology, is described and situational material is included to illustrate how each field functions and interconnects with the others. Subfields to the four major fields, such as forensics and paleoanthropology, are introduced and discussed, and the concept that humans are biocultural beings, because of the simultaneous adaptations of our biology with culture, is illustrated. The video also introduces the student to the way anthropologists carry out their analyses through rigorous fieldwork and participant observation in order to create the ethnographies that describe humans cross-culturally. Applied anthropology, sometimes referred to as the fifth subfield of anthropology, is introduced
