A founding father of American anthropology, Franz Boas devoted part of his life to the study of the Indian tribes of the northwest coast of the United States. As interested in myths, social practices, rituals and arts as in linguistics, economics or physical anthropology, he collected stories, musical scores, photographs, statistics, dreams and drawings. Thanks to the extraordinary wealth of material compiled during his fieldwork, Boas proposes a fundamental approach to anthropology: refusing to consider a culture as an immobile island, the anthropologist endeavors to trace its history and changes, defining an identity in perpetual movement.
A selection of texts translated from English and German, this collection presents for the first time the main texts of this great classic of the social sciences, which was one of the first sources of Marcel Mauss's work on the potlatch and Claude Lévi-Strauss's work on myths.
