Modern capitalist culture by Leslie A White( )

22 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This lost magnum opus by Leslie A. White, published now for the first time, represents twenty-five years of his scholarship on the anthropology of modern capitalism. Drawing out his now classic formulations of social organization, cultural evolution, and the relationship between technology, ecology, and culture, this major theoretical work traces a vast expanse of history from the earliest forms of capitalism to the detailed inner workings of twentieth century democratic institutions. This abridged edition of an original manuscript of over 1200 pages includes a substantial foreword by Burton J. Brown, Benjamin Urish, and Robert Carneiro both situates this posthumous work within the history of anthropological theory and shows its importance to contemporary debates throughout the social sciences."--BOOK JACKET
The muse of history and the science of culture by Robert L Carneiro( )

21 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 1,094 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is history more than (in Boswell's words) a "chronological series of remarkable events"? Does it have a pattern? Is it fraught with "meaning"? Can we discern its trends? What determines its course? In short, can a substantial and coherent philosophy of history be devised that offers answers to these questions? These issues, which have intrigued historians for centuries, are explored in this book

Evolutionism in cultural anthropology : a critical history by Robert L Carneiro( Book )

22 editions published between 2000 and 2018 in English and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the history of evolutionism in cultural anthropology, beginning with its roots in the 19th century, through the half-century of anti-evolutionism, to its reemergence in the 1950s, and the current perspectives on it today. No other book covers the subject so fully or over such a long period of time. Evolutionism and Cultural Anthropology traces the interaction of evolutionary thought and anthropological theory from Herbert Spencer to the twenty-first century. It is a focused examination of how the idea of evolution has continued to provide anthropology with a master principle around which a vast body of data can be organized and synthesized. Erudite and readable, and quoting extensively from early theorists (such as Edward Tylor, Lewis Henry Morgan, John McLennan, Henry Maine, and James Frazer) so that the reader might judge them on the basis of their own words, Evolutionism and Cultural Anthropology is useful reading for courses in anthropological theory and the history of anthropology. 0813337666 Evolutionism in Cultural Anthropology : a Critical History

Chiefdoms : yesterday and today by A. V Korotaev( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What many anthropologists regard as the major step in political development occurred when, for the first time in history, previously autonomous villages gave up their individual sovereignties and were brought together into a multi-village political unit - the chiefdom. Though long neglected as a major stage in history, in recent years the chiefdom has been the focus of increased attention. As its importance has been more fully recognized, it has become the object of serious scholarly analysis and interpretation. In this volume specialists in political evolution draw on data from ethnography, archaeology, and history and apply fresh insights to enhance the study of the chiefdom, from how this form of political organization first arose to the role it played in giving rise to the next major stage in the development of human society - the state. -- from back cover
