Traditional Cultures: A Survey of Nonwestern Experience and Achievement

Передня обкладинка
Waveland Press, 2003 - 312 стор.
"This uniquely broad survey reconstructs the nonwestern world as it was before the main onslaught of European imperialism. It offers a systematic overview rather than an idiosyncratic selection of particulate cultures. It also gives the reader a foundation for understanding traditions that survive today, illuminating topics such as the meaning of gambling to Native Americans and the significance of female seclusion in Middle Eastern cultures." "Highly organized and concise, King's systematic approach will help students learn and retain a large amount of material they can apply to other anthropology courses, other disciplines, and to the world around them. The material is presented as objectively as possible so that instructors can emphasize any theoretical or topical perspective."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
