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

10 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 726 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
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 652 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material in a national context, and brings together a great deal of information about Japanese marriage hitherto unpublished in English
An anthropology of indirect communication( Book )

18 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

11 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Orient strikes back : a global view of cultural display by Joy Hendry( Book )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examining Japanese parks in the context of a variety of historical examples of cultural display around the world, this book calls into question the adoption of postmodern theory as an ethnocentrically Western phenomenon
Japan at play : the ludic and logic of power by Joy Hendry( Book )

21 editions published between 1459 and 2005 in English and Thai and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the myth, so abused by the mass media, that the Japanese are a grey, anonymous mass of efficient, obedient workers
Interpreting Japanese society : anthropological approaches by Joy Hendry( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1986, Interpreting Japanese Society became something of a classic in the field. In this newly revised and updated edition, the value of anthropological approaches to help understand an ancient and complex nation is clearly demonstrated. While living and working in Japan the contributors have studied important areas of society. Religion, ritual, leisure, family and social relations are covered as are Japanese preconceptions of time and space - often so different from Western concepts. This new edition of Interpreting Japanese Society shows what an important contribution research in such a rapidly changing industralised nation can make to the subject of anthropology. It will be welcomed by students and scholars alike who wish to find refreshing new insights on one of the world's most fascinating societies
Science and sustainability : learning from indigenous wisdom by Joy Hendry( Book )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 314 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"--
Other people's worlds : an introduction to cultural and social anthropology by Joy Hendry( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Other People's Worlds offers the perfect introduction to cultural and social anthropology for anyone approaching the subject for the first time. Hendry introduces classic theoretical ideas of the key founders of cultural and social anthropology, placing them in their historical and geographical context. Carefully structured so that one chapter builds on the next, Other People's Worlds covers the core topics in an even-handed and illuminating manner, introducing the reader to divergent views on all the most basic subjects - food, hygiene, gift-exchange, rites of passage, symbolism, religion, politics, and the environment - and raising awareness of the emotional value people place on those views. Covering a wide array of countries, it brings the subject of cultural and social anthropology right into the neighborhood of the reader, wherever they are in the world."--BOOK JACKET

An anthropologist in Japan : glimpses of life in the field by Joy Hendry( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 17 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
