Product Description:

"Levi-Strauss continues his assault on the myth of the primitice as savage by turning to the phenomena of totemism an totoemix classification ... to show, contrary to this myth, that primitive thought rests upon a rich and complex conceptual structure." –   Commentary

Review:

-Levi-Strauss's consideration of totemism is a theoretical tour de force.- - The Humanist

-An exeptionally brilliant and pathbreaking thinker. Serious students cannot afford to miss this book.- - Library Journal
-From the startling analogy in its very first line to its valedictory bow in the direction of Rousseau, this is a stimulating book.- - American Anthropologist
