While memorials that acknowledge tragedy have been examined by scholars, this is usually done after their completion--this book also examines the unfolding of the memorialization process prior to the completion of the memorial design. It explores how the US dominant cultural interests managed such a tragic and unflattering narrative while maintaining a cohesive national identity in the face of such action. It investigates the collective memory and memorialization, in terms of the experience and cultural identity of the Cheyenne and Arapaho people, as well analyzes and interprets how a memorial can contribute to long term peace and reconciliation interests.
Debunking the Myth of Man and Ape
Human Evolution and Male Aggression dispels misconceptions based on flawed interpretations of biology and behavior. It tells the compelling story of the human male’s peaceful past. It summarizes recent advances in understanding of bones, brains, hormones, and genetics that reveals humans for who they are. Encompassing topics relevant to biological and social sciences, this book will be of interest to students of primatology, evolutionary biology, anthropology, and human behaviour.
A Textual Archaeology of the Yi jing
This highly unique study focuses on the archaic core of the Classic of Changes and proposes a structural anthropological analysis for two reasons. First, unlike many treatments of the Yi jing, there is a concern to place the text carefully in the context of the ancient culture which created it. Second, the approach differs from traditional exegesis which did not and ultimately could not address problems of textual understanding in a holistic sense. This book is not a translation of the Classic of Changes; it is a careful interpretation, or rather method of exploration, of the connectivities and topography of the text as a whole.
Kinship, Humanimal Relations, and Good Scientific Research
This book raises critical questions about what kinship means (or might mean) for science, for humanimal relations, and for anthropology, which has always maintained a sure grip on kinship but has not yet accounted for how it might be validly claimed to exist between humanimals in new and emerging contexts of relatedness.
