Book Description University of Washington Press, Seattle and London, 1966. Original Cloth Binding. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. xxvi+204 pages with maps, charts, bibliography and index. Octavo (8 3/4" x 5 3/4") bound in original publisher's black cloth with gilt lettering to spine and initials to cover in original pictorial jacket. With collaboration of Abraham Rostein. Foreword by Paul Bohannan. From the library of professor Robert Van Kemper. American Ethnological Society Monograph number 42. First edition. Karl Polanyi's unique contribution to economic anthropology and comparative economy is enriched by the publication of this study of Dahomey, the author's last scholarly work. Dahomey originated in the late sixteenth century on a small plateau some sixty miles from the Guinea coast. As a geographical entity Dahomey was an almost featureless area of bush country, virtually without resources and definable frontiers. Hence there was a necessity to compensate for these deficiencies by superior arms, a fact that tied Dahomey to the source of its weapons-the coast. The vicissitudes of its history, as well as the stimuli that affected its unusual development, are shown to be clearly related to its location. Polanyi delineates the origins of the Dahomean kingdom and its geographical and historical character. While unraveling and defining the working of the economy in terms of the institutions of the society-particularly the market system and the function of money as payment, as standard, and as exchange-he examines the impact on the economy of the gold trade, the slave trade and colonialism. Robert V. Kemper, born in San Diego, California, on November 21, 1945, resided in Dallas, Texas, where he was Professor of Anthropology at Southern Methodist University. He received his Ph.D. in Anthropology in 1971 from the University of California at Berkeley and spent the academic year 1971-1972 there as a National Endowment for the Humanities Post-Doctoral Fellow in Mexican American Studies before joining the SMU faculty. At SMU, he has served as Chair of the Department of Anthropology, President of the Faculty Senate, and member of the University Board of Trustees. His research interests include migration and urbanization, history of anthropology, community development, tourism, Mexico, and the United States. His numerous publications include Anthropologists in Cities (1974), Migration and Adaptation: Tzintzuntzan Peasants in Mexico City (1977), Migration Across Frontiers: Mexico and the United States (1979), Chronicling Cultures: Long-Term Field Research in Anthropology (2002), and Urban Life (5th ed., 2010). He has served as President of the Society for Latin American Anthropology and the Society for Urban Anthropology, as well as Editor of Human Organization, Editor for Social-Cultural Anthropology of the American Anthropologist, and Associate Editor for Urban Anthropology Condition: Kemper's stamp to front end paper. Jacket spine sunned else a near fine copy in like jacket. Bookseller Inventory # 000656
