Society against the state : the leader as servant and the humane uses of power among the Indians of the Americas by Pierre Clastres( Book )

116 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in 11 languages and held by 1,467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chronicle of the Guayaki Indians by Pierre Clastres( Book )

80 editions published between 1972 and 2012 in 8 languages and held by 1,101 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."--Jacket
Archeology of violence by Pierre Clastres( Book )

37 editions published between 1980 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 524 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
Archéologie de la violence : la guerre dans les sociétés primitives by Pierre Clastres( Book )

19 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in French and Japanese and held by 187 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
Le grand parler : mythes et chants sacrés des Indiens guarani by Pierre Clastres( Book )

9 editions published between 1974 and 2011 in French and Spanish and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stone age economics by Marshall Sahlins( Book )

11 editions published between 1972 and 2000 in French and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stone Age Economics is a classic of economic anthropology, ambitiously tackling the nature of economic life and how to study it comparatively. This collection of six essays, first published in 1974, is one of Marshall Sahlin's most influential and enduring works, asserting that Stone Age economies formed the original affluent society. The book examines notions of production, distribution and exchange in early communities and examines the link between economics and cultural and social factors."--Jacket
De la servitude volontaire, ou, Contr'un by Estienne de La Boétie( Book )

14 editions published between 1976 and 2009 in French and Spanish and held by 75 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

Arqueología de la violencia : la guerra en las sociedades primitivas by Pierre Clastres( Book )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in Spanish and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Basándose en hechos etnográficos, el autor demuestra el carácter estructural y político de la actividad bélica en la sociedad primitiva. Analiza la restringida autoridad del jefe, limitada a hablar en nombre de una ley ancestral inalterable. Estudia el papel de los enemigos y de las alianzas. Explica el estado de guerra permanente y su lógica centrífuga de dispersión. Revela por qué la comunidad primitiva, conservadora, homogénea e independiente, renuente a cualquier tipo de división social y de acumulación de poder, es una sociedad para la guerra y en contra del Estado
