Cultural Anthropology: The Field Study of Human Beings

Front Cover
Rowman & Littlefield, 1998 - Social Science - 576 pages
[TofC cont.] Anthropology of modern life: Market and the modern metropolis, a new system of exchange and the rise of commercial industrial cities; Corporate bureaucracy and the culture of modern work; Modernity and culture; Epilogue, applied anthropology and the policy process. ... The framework on which this book hangs is an updated version of the community study method as network, discerned at the expanding "gas phase" of our species' random walk over the earth, through our settling down into trading and warring tribal societies through the mesolithic and neolithic transitions, into our densification into urban states and civilizations, and finally at our emergence as a metropolitan species of unparalleled population aggregations. -Pref.
