Recognized as a major work when first published, this title has, over the years, become a classic. Forming the basis of modern social anthropology, We the Tikiopia stands in the forefront of its literature. The book is an excellent example of fieldwork analysis of a primitive society; a complete account of the working of a primitive kinship system; and an exhaustive and sophisticated study of Polynesian social institutions. First published in 1936.

An illuminating introduction to the methods and problems of social anthropology, this book draws on a wide range of illustrations, including Raymond Firth's own experiences in New Zealand, Malaya and the Solomon Islands. The concept of social organisation is discussed with special reference to the role of individual choice and decision in social affairs and the nature of social change. Social organisation in relation to economic, aesthetic, moral and religious values is also examined. First published in 1951. This re-issue is of the third, 1961 edition.

Der deutsch-griechische Privatgelehrte Panajotis Kondylis hat bis zu seinem überraschenden Tod 1998 große Standardwerke zur Philosophie- und Politischen Ideengeschichte der Aufklärung, des Konservatismus und der Metaphysik-Kritik verfasst. Das sein wissenschaftliches Leben krönende dreibändige Hauptwerk zur Sozialontologie kann jetzt nur als Torso mit dem kompletten, in sich geschlossenen ersten Band publiziert werden. Eine Sozialontologie muss, wenn sie ihren Namen verdienen will, eine Tiefendimension beschreiben, auf der die zeitlosen Grundgegebenheiten menschlichen Verhaltens von der Urhorde bis zur Gegenwart erkennbar werden. Die Sozialtheorien des 20. Jahrhunderts wie Kommunikationstheorie, kybernetische und ökonomistische Sozialtheorie leisten dazu keinen Beitrag, wie der Autor im 1. Kapitel seines Buches nachweist, denn sie besitzen strukturelle Entsprechungen zur Gliederung und Funktionsweise der modernen Massengesellschaften. Sie haben mit diesen die Denkstile gemeinsam und erweisen damit ihren ideologischen Charakter. Die Analyse sozialwissenschaftlicher Erkenntnisse vor allem aus Philosophie und Soziologie im 2. Kapitel führt auf die drei ontischen Aspekte des Sozialen hin, die zusammengebracht werden müssen, nämlich die soziale Beziehung, das Politische und der Mensch. Diese drei sind gleichursprünglich und miteinander verflochten, so dass ihrer Darstellung durch die Sozialontologie keine Reihenfolge vorgegeben ist. Kondylis stellt die soziale Beziehung an den Anfang seiner Darstellung. Dieses Werk mit seinen strengen und scharfsinnigen Analysen der bekannten Sozialtheorien, auch der älteren und ältesten, der Einbeziehung der gesamten sozialwissenschaftlichen Literatur, den Belegen aus der europäischen Geistesgeschichte, der Ethnologie und Ethologie zeigt, dass alle Arbeiten von Kondylis wie Zwischenstufen auf seine Sozialontologie hinführten. Sie ist die erste überhaupt, die den Anspruch auch einzulösen vermag, schon deshalb, weil hier ein Universalgelehrter die souveräne Kenntnis der europäischen Geistesgeschichte im umfassenden Sinne zugleich mit einzigartiger Analysekraft verbindet.

The Different Faces of Motherhood began during a conversation between the two editors, developmental psychologists who have spent our professional careers working with infants and very young children. We are well aware of the impor tance of infants to their mothers and of mothers to their infants. However, we were particularly aware of the fact that, whereas our knowledge about infants increases exponentially . each decade, our assumptions about mothers change relatively little. We were concerned about the theories that underlie the advice given to mothers and also about the assumption that mothers appear to be generic. More and more we have learned about individual differences in babies, but not more and more about individual differences in mothers. Our second concern has been to expand our knowledge about mothers. Our assumptions were few and our questions were many. We believed that the experience of women would vary greatly, both in outlook and in behavior, depending on each woman's age, marital status, finan Cial status, ethnicity, health, education and work experience, as well as a wom an's own experience in her family origin and her relationship to her husband. If we are to understand child development and believe that the early years are important in a child's life, then it seems critical to examine our beliefs about mothers. If we are to understand human development, then being a mother is surely an important area of inquiry.

A profoundly heartening view of human nature, Beyond War offers a hopeful prognosis for a future without war. Douglas P. Fry convincingly argues that our ancient ancestors were not innately warlike--and neither are we. He points out that, for perhaps ninety-nine percent of our history, for well over a million years, humans lived in nomadic hunter-and-gatherer groups, egalitarian bands where warfare was a rarity. Drawing on archaeology and fascinating recent fieldwork on hunter-gatherer bands from around the world, Fry debunks the idea that war is ancient and inevitable. For instance, among Aboriginal Australians, warfare was an extreme anomaly. Fry also points out that even today, when war seems ever present, the vast majority of us live peaceful, nonviolent lives. We are not as warlike as we think, and if we can learn from our ancestors, we may be able to move beyond war to provide real justice and security for the world.
