The politics of ethnicity : indigenous peoples in Latin American states by David Maybury-Lewis( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This timely book is a sweeping anthropological vision of contemporary relations between the indigenous peoples of Latin America and the states that contain them. The resulting picture is an indictment for most Latin American nation-states except for specific governments that have been able to respond to well-organized indigenous social and political movements. However, one central fact remains undisputed: the Latin American indigenous movement has provoked a most radical questioning of the models of nation-state, democracy, and development since the expansion of anarchistic and socialist theories in the late 19th century."--Sefano Varese, Professor of Native American Studies, University of California Davis, Director of the Indigenous Research Center of the Americas

Dialectical societies : the Gê and Bororo of central Brazil( Book )

13 editions published in 1979 in English and Undetermined and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Gê-speaking tribes of Central Brazil have always been an anomaly in the annals of anthropology; their exceedingly simple technology contrasts sharply with their highly complex sociological and ideological traditions. Dialectical Societies, the outgrowth of extended anthropological research organized by David Maybury-Lewis, at long last demystifies Gê social structure while modifying and reinterpreting some of the traditional ideas held about kinship, affiliation, and descent. Each of the seven contributors deals with a different lowland tribe, but all of them address an ideological focus on the dualistic tribal organization that is here defined as fundamental to the Gê As a collection, their work comprises a substantial revision of the hitherto undeveloped and largely ignored ethnography of Central Brazil

The Art of Living( Visual )

7 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[The art of living] "Why do we separate art and living? The episode finds them joined for a young woman of the Wodaabe of Niger; in the elaborate funeral dances of the Dogon of Mali; and in the daily life of an HIV-positive Canadian artist. Each shows us how art and life and death are interconnected--and how each gives the other two meaning."--Container

7 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[The shock of the other] "Learn how the Western world's desire to remake other societies into its own image has robbed our modern world of the gifts of other cultures. Understand the need to protect other cultures that are threatened by industrial expansion. In "The Shock of the Other," program host David Maybury-Lewis begins the series with a visit to his Xavante brother in central Brazil where he explains the need to find balance between cultural diversity and our desire to be like one another. Then journey with him and the Millennium series team deep into the heart of the Amazon where they seek to unravel the mystery of a small tribe called the Mascho-Piro who remain hidden from the outside world. Through scenes of the decimation of the tropical rain forests, interviews with threatened indigenous peoples, and the narrator's reflections on the discovery of the Americas and other historical events, discover why so much is at stake when modern industrialism meets the tribal world."--Container
