Bronislaw Malinowski. In the same way that Frazer mapped out new worlds for modern anthropologists by rediscovering a common poetry in the mythologies of cultures, so Malinowski (through his studies of the Melanesian peoples) found a poetry in daily living.

If you are ordering this book, I suspect you already know it is a classic. I teach it to 22 year old students of art and design, and they are as appalled as they are excited by it. In short: it's a highly compelling read when contextualized. Loaded with points of departure for further thinking, especially if you are interested in functionalism.

This is one of the most interesting books I have read. A fascinating book. Mzlinowski was a contemporary of Margaret Mead, but worked in a different island group. This book shows that magic science and religion have more in common than one would think. Malinowski shows how the islanders see the lines between each of the disciplines as being fuzzy rather than sharp.

I honestly wanted to love this book since I adored my anthropology class but I absolutely hated it. Was so tedious to read, boring, and was definitely one of the worst parts of homework for the week.

Malinowski was a contemporary of Margaret Mead, but worked with a diff3ent set of Pacific Islanders. He discovered that the lines between the three fields were fluid and often overlapped. None of the three fields is black and white, there is a lot of gray at the borders. This is one of the most interesting books I've read. I highly recommend it.

The service was prompt, the book was in excellent shape. I would definitely order here again. All in all, very pleased with this transaction!

Michael W. Young's biography (2004)of Bronislaw Malinowski, with the Malinowski family's blessing and support, documents the anthropologist's personal and professional journey through life. Young's writing style positions, with a seemingly intended purpose, the reader in a distant, objective armchair pose while detailing the aspects of Malinowski's life. Considering the access Young had,the biography appears well-researched, and was fascinating to explore.
This book can be incredibly boring because its written with a antiquated, prosaic tone. Malinowski's theories can at times seem transparent and naïve, but this is what you would expect from a collection of essays written roughly 50 years ago. Notwithstanding, If you're a patient reader and push through this work you will cull some very thought provoking knowledge from it.
