Most widely held works by Marcel Mauss
Primitive classification by Émile Durkheim( Book )
59 editions published between 1063 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,563 libraries worldwide
In this influential work, first published in English in 1963, Durkheim and Mauss claim that the individual mind is capable of classification and they seek the origin of the 'classificatory function' in society. On the basis of an intensive examination of forms and principles of symbolic classification reported from the Australian aborigines, the Zuñi and traditional China, they try to establish a formal correspondence between social and symbolic classification. From this they argue that the mode of classification is determined by the form of society and that the notions of space, time, hierarc

The gift : forms and functions of exchange in archaic societies by Marcel Mauss( Book )
61 editions published between 1954 and 2011 in English and held by 1,233 libraries worldwide
"Since its first publication in English in 1954, Marcel Mauss's Essai sur le Don has been acclaimed as a classic among anthropology texts. A brilliant example of the comparative method, it presents the first systematic study of the custom -- widespread in primitive societies from ancient Rome to present-day Melanesia -- of exchanging gifts." "The gift is a perfect example of what Mauss calls a total social phenomenon, since it involves legal, economic, moral, religious, aesthetic, and other dimensions. He sees the gift exchange as related to individuals and groups as much as to the objects themselves, and his analysis calls into question the social conventions and economic systems that had been taken for granted for so many years." "In a modern translation, introduced by the distinguished anthropologist Mary Douglas, The Gift is essential reading for students of social anthropology and sociology

A general theory of magic by Marcel Mauss( Book )
39 editions published between 1972 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 932 libraries worldwide
"First written by Marcel Mauss and Henri Humbert in 1902, A General Theory of Magic gained a wide new readership when republished by Mauss in 1950. As a study of magic in 'primitive' societies and its survival today in our thoughts and social actions, it represents what Claude Le;vi-Strauss called, in an introduction to that edition, the astonishing modernity of the mind of one of the century's greatest thinkers. The book offers a fascinating snapshot of magic throughout various cultures as well as deep sociological and religious insights still very much relevant today. At a period when art, magic and science appear to be crossing paths once again, A General Theory of Magic presents itself as a classic for our times." -- Back cover

Manual of ethnography by Marcel Mauss( Book )
10 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 268 libraries worldwide
"Marcel Mauss (1872-1950) was the leading social anthropologist in Paris between the world wars, and his Manuel d'ethnographie, dating from that period, is the longest of all his texts. Despite having had four editions in France, the Manuel has hitherto been unavailable in English. This contrasts with his essays, many of which have long enjoyed the status of classics within anthropology. We are therefore pleased to present, in the English language for the first time, this extraordinary work that is based on the more than thirty lectures Mauss delivered each year under the title 'Instructions in descriptive ethnography, intended for travellers, administrators and missionaries.' Mauss's treatment of fundamental questions, such as how to conceptualize and classify the range of social phenomena known to us from history and ethnography, has lost none of its freshness."--BOOK JACKET
Marcel Mauss : a centenary tribute by Winston James( Book )
3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 266 libraries worldwide
There are fresh insights into comparative politics and history, modern forms of charity, and new readings of some political and historical aspects of Mauss' work that bear on the analysis of regions such as Africa and the Middle East, relatively neglected by the Durkheimian school and by structuralism. This volume is a timely tribute to mark the centenary of Mauss' early work and confirms the continuing relevance of his ideas

15 editions published between 1934 and 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 266 libraries worldwide
Techniques, technology and civilisation by Marcel Mauss( Book )
7 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 197 libraries worldwide
"Marcel Mauss's writings on techniques and technology are at the forefront of an important anthropological and sociological research tradition, and they also highlight the theoretical and ideological challenges surrounding this field of study. A selection of Mauss's texts - including his major statements on methodology, body techniques, practical reason, nation and civilisation, progress - are have translated and presented together for the first time, with a discussion of their context, impact and implications. This book will interest scholars and students dealing with the French sociological tradition, and also more generally those concerned with technology and material culture studies in archaeological, anthropological or contemporary settings."--Jacket
The nature of sociology : two essays by Marcel Mauss( Book )
6 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 191 libraries worldwide
"This book consists of translations of two of Mauss's most significant statements on the social sciences. The first, an early contribution written with Fauconnet, outlines the methodological orientations of the school. The second, written somewhat later, examines the internal organization of sociology as a division of labor. Anthropologists as well as sociologists will find these essays of much interest. Amongst the issues raised by them are how far was Mauss a systematic thinker and how did he see the relation between anthropology and sociology."--BOOK JACKET
