Description - The Savage Mind by Claude Levi-Strauss

"Every word, like a sacred object, has its place. No precis is possible. This extraordinary book must be read."--Edmund Carpenter, New York Times Book Review "No outline is possible; I can only say that reading this book is a most exciting intellectual exercise in which dialectic, wit, and imagination combine to stimulate and provoke at every page."--Edmund Leach, Man "Levi-Strauss's books are tough: very scholarly, very dense, very rapid in argument. But once you have mastered him, human history can never be the same, nor indeed can one's view of contemporary society. And his latest book, The Savage Mind, is his most comprehensive and certainly his most profound. Everyone interested in the history of ideas must read it; everyone interested in human institutions should read it."--J. H. Plumb, Saturday Review "A constantly stimulating, informative and suggestive intellectual challenge."--Geoffrey Gorer, The Observer, London
