About the Book

"The system of personal names among the Mura-Pirahá of southeastern Amazonas, a group little-known in ethnographic literature, is the starting point. Using the logic of this naming system, author elucidates themes in cosmology, sociability, ritual, eschatology, cannibalism, warfare, identity, and alterity. A contribution to structuralist analysis of classification systems"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 57.
