9780199241965: An Amazonian Myth and Its History (Oxford Studies in Social and Cultural Anthropology)

Uniting the ethnographic data collected by the fieldwork methods invented by Malinowski with Levi-Strauss's analyses of the relations between myth and time, this book analyzes a century of social transformation of the indigenous Piro people of Peruvian Amazonia. It is an important contribution to anthropological debates on the nature of history and social change, as well as on neglected areas such as myth, visual art, and the methodological issues involved in fieldwork and archival data.
