Added to your basket:
A set of offprints of four articles by Lévi-Strauss from the Smithsonian’s Handbook of South American Indians, inscribed by the author. In each article Claude Lévy-Strauss (1908–2009) provides an illustrated introduction to an Amazonian group, recording their history, social and political customs, religion, dress, food, and manufacture, as well as critically discussing earlier anthropological accounts. In exploring familial and marital structures, the articles are important texts in the development of Lévy-Strauss’s structural anthropology.
