Tuhami is an illiterate Moroccan tilemaker who believes himself married to a camel-footed she-demon. A master of magic and a superb story-teller, Tuhami lives in a dank, windowless hovel near the kiln where he works. Nightly he suffers visitations from the demons and saints who haunt his life, and he seeks, with crippling ambivalence, liberation from 'A'isha Qandisha, the she-demon. In a sensitive and bold experiment in interpretive ethnography, Crapanzano presents Tuhami's bizarre account of himself and his world. In so doing, Crapanzano draws on phenomenology, psychoanalysis, and symbolism to reflect upon the nature of reality and truth and to probe the limits of anthropology itself. Tuhami has become one of the most important and widely cited representatives of a new understanding of the whole discipline of anthropology.

The Hamadsha are members of a loosely and diversely organized religious brotherhood, or confraternity, which traces its spiritual heritage back to two Moroccan saints of the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries, Sidi 'Ali ben Hamdush and Sidi Ahmed Dghughi. Despite a certain notoriety due to their head-slashing and other practices of self-mutilation, the Hamadsha have received comparatively little attention in the literature, ethnographic or other, on Morocco and North Africa.

A distinguished anthropologist tells his life story as a wistful novelist would, watching himself as if he were someone else This memoir recaptures meaningful moments from the author’s life: as his childhood on the grounds of a psychiatric hospital, his psychiatrist father’s early death, his years at school in Switzerland and then at Harvard in the 1960s, his love affairs, his own teaching, and his far-flung travels. Taken together, these stories have the power of a nothing-taken-for-granted vision, fighting those conventions and ideologies that deaden the creative and inquiring mind.

Orphans of Islam portrays the abject lives and 'excluded body' of abandoned and bastard children in contemporary Morocco, while critiquing the concept and practice of 'adoption, ' which too often is considered a panacea. Through a close and historically grounded reading of legal, social, and cultural mechanisms of one predominantly Islamic country, Jamila Bargach shows how 'the surplus bastard body' is created by mainstream society. Written in part from the perspectives of the children and single mothers, intermittently from the view of 'adopting' families, and employing bastardy as a haunting and empowering motif with a potentially subversive edge, this ethnography is composed as an intricate, open-ended, and arabesque-like evocation of Moroccan society and its state institutions. It equally challenges received sociological and anthropological tropes and understandings of the Arab world

Vom Auftritt der Ethnologie geht eine Erschütterung, wenn nicht gar eine Bedrohung aus, der sich die europäische Philosophie nicht entziehen kann. Daher muß diese neue Wissenschaft vom kulturell Fremden auf Willhelm Dilthey, Edmund Husserl, Martin Heidegger, Emmanuel Levinas und Jacques Derrida eine verstörende Wirkung ausüben. Doch der Schock des Fremdkulturellen wird aufgefangen in transzendentalen oder aber ethisch aufgeladenen Theorien des Anderen und der Gabe. Die umfangreiche Auseinandersetzung der hermeneutisch-phänomenologischen Philosophien mit der Ethnologie eines Bastian, Frazer, Tyler, Boas, Malinowski, Lévy-Bruhl, Mauss und Lévi-Strauss wird dabei jedoch nie zum Anlaß notwendiger Selbstkritik und einer Konfrontation mit dem >Primitiven im kulturtheoretischen und philosophischen Diskurs genommen. Bis hin zu Derrida bleibt die Philosophie in der Konfrontation mit fremdkulturellen Wahrheitsansprüchen in ihren universalen Geltungsanmaßungen und damit in den Grenzen des griechischen Logos befangen. Das Gegenstück zur Europäisierung, nämlich eine Indianisierung der europäischen Philosophien, sucht man daher vergeblich. Iris Därmann gelingt es, Möglichkeiten einer inversiven Ethnologie aufzuzeigen, die aus der Perspektive fremder Kulturen die eigene Kultur in Frage stellen und den Eurozentrismus abendländischer Philosophie demontieren. Damit hat sie einen Beitrag vorgelegt, der die grundlegenden philosophischen Positionen zum Fremden herausfordern wird. Aus dem Inhalt: I.Inversive Ethnographien statt Konstruktion des Fremden II.Marcel Mauss' Gabenweltreise III.Freuds Psychoanalyse der Idenfizierung und Gabe IV.Diltheys Hermeneutik im Fadenkreuz des Fremden und der Ethnologie V.Fremdes, Allzufremdes: Husserls Phänomenologie der Fremderfahrung und Fremdwelt VI.Primitives Dasein

It is told that the ancestors of the Navajos journeyed through four worlds to reach the fifth, or present, one. The pressing complexities and underlying wonder of their fifth world of modern reservation life are portrayed in this classic ethnographic account by Vincent Crapanzano. ø As a young, inexperienced anthropologist, Crapanzano spent a summer with a Navajo man he calls Forster Bennett. In his fifties, Bennett was raised during the early reservation years, fought in the South Pacific in the Second World War, and, like many, carried a deep but not always openly expressed resentment toward whites. Crapanzano?s honest and gritty account of his time with Bennett and Bennett's community reveals a stark portrait of the ?flat, slow quality of reservation life,? where boredom and poverty coexist with age-old sacred rituals and the varying ways that Navajos react and adjust to changes in their culture.
