The Structural study of myth and totemism by Edmund Ronald Leach ( Book )
67 editions published between 1967 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Designed to provoke controversy, the papers in this volume concentrate on two main themes: the study of myth and totemism. Starting with an English translation of La Geste d'Asdiwal, which is widely considered to be the most brilliant of all of Lévi-Strauss's shorter expositions of his technique of myth analysis, the volume also contains criticism of this essay. The second part of the volume discusses how far Lévi-Strauss's treatment of totemism as a system of category formation can be correlated with the facts that an ethnographer encounters in the field. First published in 1967

Elites in South Asia by Edmund Ronald Leach ( Book )
13 editions published between 1970 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A study of elitism particularly concerned with Indian elites in the context of British influence and its aftermath. The problems delineated are by no means peculiar to the Indian subcontinent. Nearly all the developing countries of contemporary Asia, Africa and Latin America are entangled with their post-colonial heritage and the history of political elitism in all these countries has been similar. The papers consider who were members of the elites, in the sense of 'men at the top'. They enquire how they got there, how they continued to recruit themselves and what was their relationship with the British. The contributors, sociologists, economists, anthropologists, political scientists and historians, present each other with forms of evidence which are unfamiliar and, in sum, result in a study which destroys many of the conventional clichés of colonial historians.--Publisher description
Runaway world : how globalization is reshaping our lives by Anthony Giddens ( Book )
23 editions published between 1967 and 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Runaway World, leading social commentator Anthony Giddens shows how globalization impacts every human on earth. Giddens examines the global marketplace, but goes beyond a conventional economic approach to look at more universal issues like family, risk, tradition, and democracy. Runaway World describes how changing currents in the international seas of finance are destabilizing countries, and how most people (and their governments) aren't prepared to deal with an ever-accelerating capitalism and Americanization of culture. Giddens finds the changes largely positive - liberating women, spreading democracy, and creating new wealth - but acknowledges the hazards of so much money crossing so many borders and distant cultures colliding."--Jacket
