Summary

An ethnographic case study on the psychological and cultural dynamics of violence, this text is an ideal supplement in any anthropology or sociology course focusing on human social behavior. Attempting to serve as both a narrative account of violence and a general explanatory frame for this violence, Waorani: The Contexts of Violence and War focuses on understanding and explaining violence in Waorani society while developing a theoretical model that can encompass violence in other societies.

This case study is unique in developing a contextual analysis of violence and war and in explicity testing and rejecting the current sociobiological and ecological models of violence and warfare.

Develops the concept of Schema which provides a unitary framework for discussing both culture and individual psychology, as well, as the relationship between society and individuals.

By applying the results of the case study research to the problem of urban violence, the text demonstrates the relevance of basic anthropological research to the problems in the contemporary world.

Glossary defines key terms and concepts, while a bibliographic listing directs students to related materials and readings.
