About The Nuer: A Description Of The Modes Of

Product description First published in 1940, this study has become one of the classic works in social anthropology. The Nuer of the Southern Sudan are predominantly a pastoral people and the first part of the book describes their life as herdsmen, fishermen and gardeners. Their economic life is related to the absence of chieftainship and their democratic sentiment. The second part of the book describes this political system which lacks government and is without legal institutions. Numerous photos, maps, charts, tables and drawings. Fully indexed and cross referenced - a work of extraordinary scholarship. Review "An excellent example of British social anthropology. Useful as a teaching tool for social organization."--Michele Gamburd, Portland State University "We used this as an ethnographic example of structural-functionalism for our introductory theory course. Very useful."--Margaret S. Johnson, University of Colorado "The best ecology and anthropology ever written." -- Whole Earth Review "Amazed that it went out of print briefly. I plan to use it again."--P. Shipton, Harvard University About the Author The late Edward E. Evans Pritchard was a Professor of Social Anthropology at the University of Oxford.
