Product Description
Bronislaw Malinowski, one of the all-time great anthropologists, had a talent for bringing together in single comprehension the warm reality of human living with the cool abstractions of science. His pages have become an almost indispensable link between the knowing of "exotic" and remote people and theoretical knowledge about humankind. This classic volume first published in 1922 can be considered the founding document of economic anthropology, and remains the best one to read. It emphasizes the great significance of "primitive" economics by singling out the notable exchange system of the Trobriand Islands for special consideration. Although the main theme is economic, constant reference is made to social organization, life and meaning, the power of magic, and mythology and folklore. ... For the last three decades, Waveland Press has proudly made Malinowski's most famous ethnography available for modern-day students and readers at a reasonable price. The handsome 2013 Enhanced Edition of this milestone of anthropological research and interpretation has been visually enriched by the digital enhancement of 80 historic photographs and maps.
