Chronicle of the Guayaki Indians by Pierre Clastres( Book )

76 editions published between 1972 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 1,088 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

"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

Archéologie de la violence : la guerre dans les sociétés primitives by Pierre Clastres( Book )

17 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in French 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
Stone age economics by Marshall Sahlins( Book )

11 editions published between 1972 and 2000 in French and held by 168 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

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
