Book Description

The burgeoning field of political anthropology has as its essential purpose examining the relationship between the exercise of power and the uniqueness of cultural forms. Culture and Political Change emphasizes interdisciplinary semiotic and phenomenological approaches to the relationship between political change and the durability of such cultural forms as drama, symbol, myth, ritual, and religion. Leading anthropologists and political scientists present case studies illuminating the complex causes and nature of political change.
