"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."--Jacket

"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."--Jacket
Chronique des Indiens Guayaki; ce que savent les Aché, chasseurs nomades du Paraguay by Pierre Clastres( Book )
57 editions published between 1972 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 357 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."--Page 4 de la couverture
Archéologie de la violence : la guerre dans les sociétés primitives by Pierre Clastres( Book )
18 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in French and Japanese and held by 178 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
