Indigenous Peoples, Ethnic Groups, and the State by David Maybury-Lewis

Book Description

Indigenous Peoples, Ethnic Groups, and the State provides a concise introduction to the process of modernization and its effect on tribalism and ethnic parochialism. Part of the Cultural Survival Studies in Ethnicity and Change series, this text focuses on key issues affecting indigenous and ethnic groups worldwide. Ethnic conflicts proliferate throughout the world as indigenous peoples are becoming increasingly vocal in demanding their rights, including the right to be different. Readers are invited to reexamine their ideas about the state, the role of ethnicity in it, and the peculiar situation of indigenous peoples, who are ethnic minorities alien to the states in which they live.

Manifest Destinies and Indigenous Peoples by David Maybury-Lewis Manifest Destinies and Indigenous Peoples, Paperback (March 2009)

How was frontier expansion rationalized in the Americas during late 19th century? As new states fleshed out expanded national maps, how did they represent their advances? Were there any distinct pan-American patterns? The authors examine the narrative forms that stirred or rationalized expansion, and emphasize their impact on the native residents.

Tribes by David Maybury-Lewis Tribes, Hardback (March 1998)

As civilization expands, its encroachment on tribal ways of life begins to change the customs of indigenous peoples. This collection of photographs celebrates 35 of these diverse groups and their disappearing traditions. Among the tribes are the Bumi of Ethiopia and the Masai warriors of Kenya.
