Social Identity provides a clearly-written accessible introduction to sociological and social anthropological approaches to identity. Looking at the work of Mead, Goffman and Barth, this book makes clear their relevance to everyday life. Insisting that reflexive self identity is not a modern phenomenon, the core argument is that individual and collective identity can both be understood using the same model, as 'internal' and 'external' processes. Social Identity brings together sociological and social anthropological theories of identity, and makes an original contribution to social theory.

A General Theory of Emotions and Social Life

This unique volume presents a general theory linking emotions and ratio- nal thought to social relationships. In his innovative new book TenHouten presents an encyclopaedic classi?cation of the emotions (describing 54 in total) and offers one of the most original and multi-leveled accounts of the emotions and social life ever developed. This neurocognitive sociology of the emotions shows primary emotions to be adaptive reactions to fundamental problems of life which have evolved into elementary social relationships and which can predict occur- rences of the entire spectrum of primary, complex secondary, and tertiary emotions. The scope of this work is comprehensive and includes the devel- opment of emotions in childhood, symbolic elaboration of complex emotions, emotions management, violence, and cultural and gender differ- ences.

Earth, Water, Fleece and Fabric An ethnography and archaeology of Andean camelid herding

Through a richly detailed examination of the practices of spinning yarn from the fleece of llamas and alpacas, Earth, Water, Fleece and Fabric explores the relationship that herders of the present and of the past have maintained with their herd animals in the Andes. Dransart juxtaposes an ethnography of an Aymara herding community, based on more than ten years fieldwork in Isluga in the Chilean highlands, with archaeological material from excavations in the Atacama desert.
