9780521609197: The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Hunters and Gatherers

Hunting and gathering peoples, including Kalahari Bushmen, Australian aborigines, Eskimos, and Pygmies, are the subject of endless appeal. This illustrated reference volume is the first devoted exclusively to hunting and gathering peoples that is both accessible to the nonspecialist and written by leading scholars. It is a state-of-the-art summary of knowledge on the subject, covering an extraordinary range of materials: case studies of over fifty of the world's hunter-gatherers, the archaeological background, religion and world view, music and art, questions of gender, health and nutrition, and contemporary rights.

About the Author:

Richard B. Lee is Professor of Anthropology at the University of Toronto, author of The !Kung San (1979) and The Dobe Ju'hoansi (second edition, 1993), and co-editor, with Irven Devore, of Man and Hunter (1968) and Kalahari Hunter-Gatherers (1976), and, with Eleanor Leacok, of Politics and History in Band Societies (1982).

Richard Daly is a freelance anthropologist, who has spent the past decade working on aboriginal rights cases in British Columbia, Canada. He is the author of a three-volume unpublished report, "Stol:o: The River People" (1993), and co-author of They Write Their Dreams on Rock Forever (1993).

Review:

"This is the most voluminous source available on modern hunter-gatherer societies with many excellent and readily accessible contributions." --Thomas Widlok, Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute

"...the encyclopedia sheds a respectful and objective light on the Earth's indigenous peoples, who look to the future as well as to the past." Margaret Smith

"...a gold mine of information...there is something in this volume for everyone. Scholars of religion will certainly find a wealth of information on mythology, cosmology, ritual practice, and sacred art. This is a book that should be on the reference shelf of every academic library catering to the needs of social scientists and humanists." Religious Studies Review

"This is an important and fascinating work. The numerous black-and-white photographs, drawings, and maps are excellent and well placed. The bibliographies at the end of each chapter, along with filmographies of the various native groups, are convenient springboards for further research." -- American Reference Books Annual

"This work is a commendable ethnographic overview of global hunters and gatherers."
Robert S. Walker, University of New Mexico, Journal of Anthropological Research

Descrizione libro CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Hunting and gathering is humanity s first and most successful adaptation. Until 12,000 years ago, all humanity lived this way. Surprisingly, in an increasingly urbanized and technological world dozens of hunting and gathering societies have persisted and thrive worldwide, resilient in the face of change, their ancient ways now combined with the trappings of modernity. The Encyclopedia is divided into three parts. The first contains case studies, by leading experts, of over fifty hunting and gathering peoples, in seven major world regions. There is a general introduction and an archaeological overview for each region. Part II contains thematic essays on prehistory, social life, gender, music and art, health, religion, and indigenous knowledge. The final part surveys the complex histories of hunter-gatherers encounters with colonialism and the state, and their ongoing struggles for dignity and human rights as part of the worldwide movement of indigenous peoples.
