A domesticação da mente selvagem (Coleção Antropologia) by Jack Godoy

O argumento tem como base considerações teóricas e também evidência empírica resultante de um trabalho de campo recente na África ocidental bem assim como uma grande variedade de materiais sobre as antigas sociedades do Oriente Próximo.
