A century of controversy : ethnological issues from 1860 to 1960 by Elman R Service( Book )

19 editions published between 1985 and 2014 in English and Chinese and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Century of Controversy: Ethnological Issues from 1860 to 1960 is an assessment of the history of ethnology in terms of its intellectual progress, with emphasis on the controversial issues that were broached between 1860 and 1960. Two related philosophical or theoretical poses that characterized the prominent ethnological thinkers of this period, and earlier, are related to this phenomenon. One was the prevalent positivism, the other the belief in human progress as a form of social, cultural, and mental evolution.Comprised of 19 chapters, this volume begins by looking at several eminent scholars dealing more closely with the subject of ethnology, including Henry Maine and John F. McLennan in Great Britain; Johann J. Bachofen in Switzerland; and Fustel de Coulanges in France. In particular, the chapter examines the disagreement among Maine, Bachofen, McLennan, and Fustel de Coulanges as to the nature of the earliest society and its form of marriage; the nature of the evolutionary transformations of society (especially from primitive society to civilization); and the actual meaning and function of kinship terminology. The next two chapters describe the positive, useful discoveries as well as the mistakes and weaknesses of Lewis H. Morgan's work, with particular reference to his classificatory kinship nomenclature. Subsequent sections focus on controversies surrounding kinship terminology; social structure; the origins of government; the economic life of primitive peoples; and society and culture. This book will be of interest to scholars of anthropology, archaeology, and ethnology

Havasupai NT14( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Havasupai collection covers a wide range of ethnographic data, covering a time period from approximately 1776 to 2004. Two of the major ethnographies on the traditional culture of the Havasupai are Spier and Cushing. These are supplemented by Smithson who compares modern (twentieth century) Havasupai ethnography to what it was like before European contact, and Schwartz whose culture summary, although relatively brief, covers a wide range of topics. The document by Smithson and Euler provides information on religion and mythology. Land rights and inheritance are topics discussed in Service and Martin. Other subjects of interest in this collection are: prehistory in Schwartz; political structure and leadership in Martin; diet in Bonyshek, and Martin who describes three distinct versions of Havasupai-Hualapai origins and ethnohistoric relations as suggested by Kroeber, Schwartz, and Euler and Dobyns
