Marriage in changing Japan : community and society by Joy Hendry( Book )

30 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book approaches its subject from two angles. First, there is a detailed and descriptive analysis of the social organisation of, and place of marriage in, one community in Kyushu. To this extent, the study is a regional one and provides valuable ethnographic information. The second angle, however, is to analyse this material in the light of other historical ethnographical writings on Japan, which puts the regional material in a national context, and brings together a great deal of information about Japanese marriage hitherto unpublished in English

"From patent miscommunication through potent ambiguity to pregnant silence, this collection examines from a rare anthropological perspective the many aspects of indirect communication. From a Mormon theme park to carnival time on Montserrat, the contributors analyze indirection by illustrating how food, silence, sunglasses, martial arts, and rudeness constitute powerful ways of conveying meaning."--BOOK JACKET

Anthropology : a beginner's guide by Joy Hendry( Book )

7 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anthropologists Joy Hendry and Simon Underdown offer the first introductory guide to explore both the biological and social study of humanity, from the roots of the Homo genus, to the traits that all humans share, to the vast range of our sacred rituals. They bring anthropology to life with case studies, explaining why witchcraft was so feared in seventeenth-century England but is embraced in contemporary Sudan, as well as what our relationship with mobile phones (and the bathroom) tells us about ourselves. Covering key study topics, including heirarchy, social identity, rites of passage, and the impact of globalization, this is the essential first step to understanding anthropology - for students and people working in the globalized world alike."--Publisher's website

Science and sustainability : learning from indigenous wisdom by Joy Hendry( Book )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is about indigenous science: sustainable knowledge and practice of Indigenous peoples around the world which has usually been developed and handed down for generations, but which was often largely ignored by settlers in their lands. Such science has been passed on in performance, art, stories, and in embodied practice, so the book will necessarily examine the meaning of science, problematizing the idea that Western science is the only type that deserves that name, and drawing attention to some of its shortcomings. Methods of acquiring "science" are also examined, notably including a personal account of the author's dissatisfaction with her own undergraduate training, and a realization much later of the reasons for this disillusionment. Throughout the book, the author takes the reader with her on the learning process that brought its content to her attention, and therefore introduces the reasons for wanting to share the examples gathered"--

Dismantling the East-West dichotomy : essays in honour of Jan van Bremen( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It has been customary in the appraisal of the different approaches to the study of Japan anthropology to invoke an East-West dichotomy positing hegemonic 'Western' systems of thought against a more authentic 'Eastern' alternative. Top scholars in the field of Japan anthropology examine, challenge and attempt to move beyond the notion of an East-West divide in the study of Japan anthropology. They discuss specific fieldwork and ethnographic issues, the place of the person within the context of the dichotomy, and regional perspectives on the issue. Articulating the influence of the East-West divide in other disciplines, including museum studies, religion, business and social ecology, the book attempts to look towards a new anthropology that transcends the limitations of a simplistic East-West opposition, taking into account the wealth of regional and global perspectives that are exhibited by contemporary scholarship on Japan anthropology.; In concluding if the progress achieved in anthropological work on Japan can provide a model for good practice beyond this regional specialization, this timely and important book provides a valuable examination of the current state of the academic study of Japan anthropology
An anthropologist in Japan : glimpses of life in the field by Joy Hendry( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The volume exemplifies how much of anthropological knowledge is a product of chance and how moments of insight can be embedded in a mass of everyday activity. The disturbing and disordered appears alongside the neat and the beautiful, and the vignettes here illuminate the education system, religious beliefs, politics, the family and the neighbourhood in modern Japan. This text is reflexive anthropology in action. It demonstrates how ethnographic fieldwork can provide a deep understanding of linguistic and cultural difference
