Chronicle of the Guayaki Indians by Pierre Clastres ( Book )
10 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Chronicle of the Guayaki Indians is Pierre Clastres's account of his 1963-64 encounter with this small Paraguayan tribe, a precise and detailed recording of the history, ritual, myths, and culture of this remarkably unique, and now vanished, people. "Determined not to let the slightest detail" escape him or to leave unanswered the many questions prompted by his personal experiences. Clastres follows the Guayakis in their everyday lives."--BOOK JACKET

Chronique des Indiens Guayaki; ce que savent les Aché, chasseurs nomades du Paraguay by Pierre Clastres ( Book )
36 editions published between 1972 and 2006 in French and German and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"On les appelle Guayaki, Rats féroces. Eux-mêmes se dénomment Aché, les Personnes. Silencieux et invisibles, ces nomades parcourent la forêt tropicale à l'est du Paraguay. C'est ce qui leur a permis d'échapper si longtemps au sort de leurs voisins sédentaires : esclavage, mort, disparition. L'auteur a vécu un an dans leur intimité ... Les incidents et anecdotes cocasses ou tragiques tracent peu à peu le portrait de ces Guiyaki, paillards quand ils peuvent, graves lorsqu'il le faut : fêtes du miel, de l'amour, conflits au sein des bandes, meurtres, sacrifices, anthropophagie (ils se libèrent de leurs défunts en les mangeant). A la douceur succède la cruauté. Cette culture disparue repose sur la fidélité des Indiens à leurs anciens rites et, au-delà, aux mythes de leur origine et de leur destin, qui suscitent en nous d'étranges échos. Ce livre est une chronique qui n'esquive aucun des problèmes que pose à l'ethnologie cette population indienne. De l'écologie très particulière d'une société de chasseurs à la logique la plus secrète de leur pensée, c'est le tout d'un univers culturel inconnu qui se révèle ici, sous le regard d'un des grands ethnologues français
Archeology of violence by Pierre Clastres ( Book )
8 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and French and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The essays in this, Clastres's final book, cover subjects ranging from ethnocide and shamanism to "primitive" power and economy, and are as vibrant and engaging as they were thirty years ago. This new edition--which includes an introduction by Eduardo Viveiros de Castro--holds even more relevance for readers in today's era of malaise and globalization."--BOOK JACKET
Recherches d anthropologie politique by Pierre Clastres ( Book )
11 editions published between 1980 and 2012 in French and English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Archéologie de la violence : la guerre dans les sociétés primitives by Pierre Clastres ( Book )
16 editions published between 1977 and 2013 in French and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Cet essai, paru pour la première fois en 1977, est d'abord une réflexion novatrice sur la guerre. Pour Pierre Clastres, anthropologue et ethnologue, la société primitive étant "une multiplicité de communautés indivisées qui obéissent toutes à une même logique centrifuge", c'est la guerre qui garantit la permanence de cette logique en reproduisant sans cesse cette diffusion. -- Back cover

Discours de la servitude volontaire by Estienne de La Boétie ( Book )
10 editions published between 1976 and 2009 in French and Spanish and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
El Discurso de la servidumbre voluntaria es obra juvenil de La Boétie. En ella, influido por las terribles represalias que se ejercen por Montmorency, bajo Enrique II, en Burdeos y en toda Guyena en 1548, declama, más bien que clama, contra la tiranía, utilizando la retórica de los clásicos griegos y latinos. Considera incomprensible el sometimiento, no al gobierno, sino a las ambiciones y concupiscencias de uno solo: de un tirano. Su conocimiento de los Antiguos le permite abordar el problema del poder desde su ontología, escribiendo el primer tratado moderno que se ocupa de manera frontal y directa del proceloso tema de la dominación del hombre por el hombre en el marco de la comunidad política laica. Su clarividencia le lleva abordar el tema del poder en una dimensión tan profunda, que sin renunciar a ser un clásico, su obra se convierte también en una relectura imprescindible en el angustiado mundo de la postmodernidad
