Near Fine. 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" 183 Pages Indexed. A 2003 Reprint. No marks or stamps A half dozen pages have corner creases at the top caused by a previous owner's penchant for using this method for bookmarks. Beyond this is a bright tight book with otherwise flawless text pages. The Nuer of Anglo-Egyptian Sudan were the last indigenous peole in British Africa to be conquered. The author's writings on the Nuer of southern Sudan have made them one of the most famous peoples in ethnographic literature. When the writings were first published half a century ago, they created a new agenda for social anthropology. Kinship and Marriage among the Nuer is the second of his trilogy on the society and culture of this pastoral people. It vividly portrays the experience of growing up in a Nuer community, describing daily life, marriage, sex, death, and birth. It also makes clear the essential difference between the discourse of political association and that of kinship, and shows the part played by the kinship system in Nuer society as a whole. Now published for the first time in paperback, this edition has a substantial introduction by Wendy James in which she assesses the importance of Evans-Pritchard's work and places it in the context of recent developments in social anthropology. Contents: List of Plates, List of Maps and Figures, Introduction, Preface, Kinship and the Local Community, Marriage Prohibitions and Incest, Marriage, The Family, and Kinship.
