Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

One of the major works of twentieth-century anthropological theory, written by one of the discipline’s most important, complex, and controversial figures.

This review refers to the kindle edition of the book.
I was happy to see this edition of Leslie White's book in kindle format, but sadly this appears to be a photocopy of the title. Unfortunately, the reader cannot take advantage of kindle features such as highlighting, note taking or sharing. This is hardly legible on a kindle, iPad or the mac app. Do not purchase this book until amazon or the publisher fixes this title!

Although the Kindle book is withdrawn the surviving "Look Inside" view shows that the photocopied text was perfectly readable. The book content should not be suppressed on the excuse of imperfect digitization for note-taking, sharing, etc. Please bring it back to the catalog.

Please make this work available in Kindle. It is a seminal work in Cultural Anthropology and Dr. White was an insightful and challenging thinker. I want to read his work.
