Product Overview

An innovative contribution to anthropology's interest in how identity is created and defined, this book uses two forms of ethnographic writing to explore the historical and social identity of a village on the banks of the Amazon River. He intersperses his analytical chapters with narrative
sections that describe what the people do and how they do it. He thus moves beyond notions of identity that define themselves in collective, ethnic, or class terms by focusing on people's practical engagement with their environment.
