When published in Norway nearly thirty years ago, Ethnic Groups and Boundaries marked the transition to a new era of ethnic studies. Today this much-cited classic is regarded as the seminal volume from which stems much current anthropological thinking about ethnicity. Ethnic Groups and Boundaries opens with Barth's invaluable thirty-page essay that introduces readers to important theoretical issues in the analysis of ethnic groups. Following is a collection of seven essays--the results of a symposium involving a small group of Scandinavian social anthropologists--intended to illustrate the application of Barth's analytical viewpoints to different sides of the problems of polyethnic organization in various ethnographic areas, including Norway, Sudan, Ethiopia, Mexico, Afghanistan, and Laos.

From the Inside Flap:

"Although this book was edited by Fredrik Barth some thirty years ago, the content is still very useful. In an age where educators are seeking to learn and teach about global issues and other cultures and diversities, the contents of this book provides information about certain areas of this world, such as Laos and southern Mexico, and other areas. The articles offer a crosscultural view of important topics of ethnic relations and ethnic friction. The theories about ethnic groups and boundary maintenance is current and impressive, and is useful to students of anthropology, sociology, and other departments that teach about ethnicity and ethnic relations. I highly recommend this work." -- S. P. Oliner, Humboldt State University
