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

Unfinished tales of Numenor and Middle-earth by J. R. R Tolkien( Book )

29 editions published between 1982 and 2014 in French and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"D'années en années, le culte jaloux qui entourait le "Seigneur des anneaux" à sa publication dans les années 50 s'est transformé en succès universel. Les Hobbits, ce "peuple effacé mais très ancien" qui vivait quelque part au nord-ouest de l'Ancien Monde, nous sont devenus aussi familiers que les héros des contes de fées ou ceux des grandes épopées, avec Bilbo, Gandalf, Bombadil ou Galadriel, et tous les habitants de la Terre du Milieu. Magistralement restitués par son fils après la mort de J.R.R Tolkien, les "Contes et légendes inachevés du Troisième Age" prolongent et élargissent l'œuvre de l'inépuisable conteur."

Reflections on fieldwork in Morocco by Paul Rabinow( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in French and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rarely have anthropologists regarded fieldwork as a serious object of study, although it is tacitly accepted as their major activity. How valid is the process? To what extent are the cultural data an artifact of the interaction between anthropologist and informants? Rabinow takes the view that fieldwork is an independent cultural activity, valuable in its own right and worthy of narrative report. -- Publisher description
Kinship and marriage: an anthropological perspective by Robin Fox( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in French and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robin Fox's study of systems of kinship and alliance has become an established classic of the social science literature. It has been praised above all for its liveliness of style and clarity of exposition in an area that students and general readers have found difficult to master. It was the first attempt to produce an overview of this central subject and has maintained its unique position over the years. Fox's reconciliation of 'descent' and 'alliance' theories, and his 'deductive' approach to the logic of kinship systems based on four universal premises, give the book its distinctive flavour and make it not only the best available introductory text but a contribution to theory in its own right. It has been used throughout the world as an introduction for both academic and lay readers and has been translated into numerous languages

A diary in the strict sense of the term by Bronislaw Malinowski( Book )

4 editions published in 1985 in French and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When it was first published (in 1967, posthumously), Bronislaw Malinowski's diary, covering the period of his fieldwork in 1914-15 and 1917-18 in New Guinea and the Trobriand Islands, set off a storm of controversy. Many anthropologists felt that the publication of the diary -- which Raymond Firth describes as "this revealing, egocentric, obsessional document"--Was a profound disservice to the memory of one of the giant figures in the history of anthropology. Almost certainly never intended to be published, Malinowski's diary was intensely personal and brutally honest. He kept it, he said, "as a means of self-analysis." Reviews ranged from "it is to the discredit of all concerned that the diary has now been committed to print" to "fascinating reading." Twenty years have passed, and Raymond Firth suggests that the book has moved over to a more central place in the literature of anthropological reflection. In 1967, Clifford Geertz felt that the "gross, tiresome" diary revealed Malinowski as "a crabbed, self-preoccupied, hypochondriacal narcissist, whose fellow-feeling for the people he lived with was limited in the extreme." But in 1988, Geertz referred to the diary as a "backstage masterpiece of anthropology, our The Double Helix." Similarly, in 1987, James Clifford called it "a crucial document for the history of anthropology." It is clearly time for a reissue of this controversial work, which has long been out of print. For this reissue, Raymond Firth, who wrote the original Introduction, has prepared a new Introduction that reviews the reception the diary originally received and describes how judgments about it have changed over the past twenty years. -- Back cover
