"For the first time a modern type of sociological analysis has been applied to the rich ethnographic material of northern Southeast Asia in this book. While making full use of the techniques which social anthropologists had developed during the previous decade, mainly on the basis of African materials, this book marked a departure from then current orthodoxies and has come to be recognized as constituting an outstanding development in the field of anthropological theory."--Back cover

The Structural study of myth and totemism by E. R Leach( Book )
75 editions published between 1967 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,158 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
Culture & communication : the logic by which symbols are connected : an introduction to the use of structuralist analysis in social anthropology by E. R Leach( Book )
66 editions published between 1976 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 1,148 libraries worldwide
Edmund Leach's book investigates the writings of 'structuralists,' and their different theories: the general incest theory and of animal sacrifice. This book is designed for the use of teaching undergraduates in anthropology, linguistics, literary studies, philosophy and related disciplines faced with structuralist argument. It provides the prolegomena necessary to understand the final chapter of Levi-Strauss's massive four-volume Mythologiques. Some prior knowledge of anthropological literature is useful but not essential. The principal ethnographic source is the Book of Leviticus; this guide should help anyone who is trying to grasp the essentials of 'seminology' - the general theory of how signs and symbols come to convey meaning. The author's core thesis is that: 'the indices in non-verbal communication systems, like the sound elements in spoken language, do not have meaning as isolates, but only as members of set'; the book's special merit is that it makes this kind of jargon comprehensible in terms of our everyday experience

Runaway world : how globalization is reshaping our lives by Anthony Giddens( Book )
27 editions published between 1967 and 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 579 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
