Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

This book is designed for use as a supplementary text in cultural and anthropology courses. The book chronicles the rapid social and economic change in Arembepe, a Brazilian coastal fishing village, which the author has visited repeatedly from 1962 to the present (1991). The new edition brings the account up-to-date by describing and analyzing the past ten years of life in Arembepe. This story blends descriptions of people in another culture with the anthropologist's recollection of his own attitudes, feelings and reactions. The book includes an analysis of the positive impact of television in widening the horizons of formerly isolated people, and in erasing the historical division between city and country.

About the Author:

Conrad Phillip Kottak (A.B. Columbia, 1963; Ph.D. Columbia, 1966) is Professor and Chair of Anthropology at the University of Michigan, where he has taught since 1968. In 1991 he was honored for his teaching by the University and the state of Michigan. In 1992 he received an excellence in teaching award from the College of Literature, Sciences, and the Arts of the University of Michigan. In 1999 the America Anthropological Association awarded Professor Kottak the AAA/Mayfield Award for Excellence in the Undergraduate Teaching of Anthropology.

Professor Kottak has done fieldwork in cultural anthropology in Brazil (since 1962), Madagascar (since 1966), and the United States. Conrad Kottak's articles have appeared in academic journals including American Anthropologist, Journal of Anthropological Research, American Ethnologist, Ethnology, Human Organization, and Luso-Brazilian Review. He has also written for more popular journals, including Transaction/SOCIETY, Natural History, Psychology Today, and General Anthropology.

In current research projects, Kottak and his colleagues have investigated the emergence of ecological awareness in Brazil, the social context of deforestation in Madagascar, and popular participation in economic development planning in northeastern Brazil.
