"'His book is rich in factual evidence and in ideas.' - E. E. Evans-Pritchard, Times Literary Supplement; 'Sahlins's concept of the 'domestic mode of production' starts to give economic anthropology Its necessary comparative basis. That alone would make the book important.' - Mary Douglas; 'Sahlin's excellent book represents a brilliant extension of the Economic Anthropology established by Mauss.' - David Clarke"


Stoneage Economics is a classic of economic anthropology, ambitiously tackling the nature of economic life and how to study it comparatively. This collection of six influential essays is one of Marshall Sahlins' most influential and enduring works, claiming that stone age economies formed the original affluent society. The book examines notions of production, distribution and exchange in early communities and examines the link between economics and cultural and social factors. This edition includes a new foreword by the author.
