Summary
In this lucide guide to the often abstruse works of Claude LEvi-Strauss, Edmund Leach synthesizes the thought of one of the twentieth century's greatest anthropologists and provides a thoughtful introduction to the theory and practice of structuralism. Leach organizes his work not by chronology but by theme, exploring three important topics in LEvi-Strauss's work: human beings and their symbols, the structure of myth, and kinship theory. Written concisely and with great care and penetration, this brief book is both a fine introduction for the uninitiated reader of LEvi-Strauss and a critical analysis that will prove valuable to those more familiar with the anthropologist's work
