The Karen People of Burma: A Study in Anthropology and Ethnology By Harry Ignatius Marshall
eBook (ePub): $2.99
The Karen People of Burma: A Study in Anthropology and Ethnology By H.I. Marshall. To many a visitor to Burma, who views the country from the deck of an Irrawaddy River streamer or from the window... More > of a railway carriage, there appears to be little difference between the Karen and the Burman. This is not strange, for many individuals of the non-Burman tribes wear the Burmese costume and speak the Burmese language; and they present no markedly different characteristics in feature or color of skin. I have often heard the remark that "there is no difference between the Burman and the Karen." This work deals more particularly with the Sgaw branch of the Karen people. My own experience has been more intimate with this tribe, though I have known many of the other groups. This circumstance, and the fact that the Bwe and Taungthu peoples have already been described in the Upper Burma Gazetteer, as well as the limitations of space, has led me to limit my discussion to brief references to the other tribes.< Less
Liminal Contact: A Cognitive and Anthropological Response to the ‘Death’ of Painting By Bruce Rimell
Paperback: $19.36
Prints in 3-5 business days
The alleged ‘death’ of painting has shaped the recent course of art, but the model of the human mind upon which it rests is no longer considered accurate. Cognitive science has shown that... More > the mind is not a blank slate but content-rich, and as such humans bear an array of innate expectations of reality and non-reality, which apply to painting as well as other human behaviours such as religion or music. This creative thesis takes in a series of case studies tracing the prehistory of painting in light of these cognitive propensities, from the beginnings of human culture, to Bushman rock art and the experiences of painters today, to uncover a perennial function for painting which cannot die: the ubiquitous sensation of an ‘otherworld’ beyond the canvas or rock face. This approach to painting demands its rehabilitation as a humanising self-expression in a world increasingly estranged from art, abandoning artistic ideology in favour of an image-based communion with human nature.< Less

King Arthur's Tribe: A New Anthropology of the Veneti By Piero Favero
eBook (PDF): $9.14
Why has the character of King Arthur been so successful over the centuries? The answer can be found in the aura of mystery surrounding his figure. Indeed, there are no certainties about him. We do... More > not know when he was born and where his kindgom was. In order to solve the mystery, it would thus be of great help to identify “the tribe that created his myth”. Could it have been the Veneti? The Veneti were a very ancient and fascinating people, scattered in various areas of Europe, and this volume thus sets out to offer an innovative study on the Veneti of the Atlantic and Baltic areas through a comprehensive analysis of historical, archaeological and mythological aspects. Authoritative international sources have been incorporated to guide the reader toward an intriguing reinterpretation of the ancient Veneti which reveals unsuspected aspects of a far-gone world, which was so different from ours. What emerges is a forgotten heritage that culturally links distant areas of Europe.< Less

More > scale of big data. Michael Mandberg wrote software that parses the entirety of the English-language Wikipedia database and programmatically lays out nearly 7500 volumes, complete with covers, and then uploads them to Lulu.com for print-on-demand. Print Wikipedia draws attention to the sheer size of the encyclopedia's content and the impossibility of rendering Wikipedia as a material object in fixed form: Once a volume is printed it is already out of date. It is also a work of found poetry built on what is likely the largest appropriation ever made. As we become increasingly more dependent on information and source material on the Internet today, Mandiberg explores the accessibility of its vastness.< Less
