This unique anthology outlines and reconsiders the disciplinary origins of the anthropology of education. The book is a student-oriented compilation of classic articles written by anthropologists who helped pioneer the field some fifty years ago. Their names constitute a veritable who s who in cultural anthropology: Kluckhohn, Linton, Mead, Benedict, and Redfield to name a few, who while accomplished in the general area of cultural anthropology nevertheless gave specific attention to the developing area of the anthropology of education. Also included in the collection are contemporary classics by non-anthropologists such as Paulo Freire, James Baldwin, and Jonathan Kozol, who tackle more recent issues facing education and educators. The readings are termed classic because, collectively, they represent the best of that to which today s students of the anthropology of education should be exposed for a first-rate introduction to the field. Despite their relevance and importance, many of these articles are out-of-print, difficult to find, or otherwise unavailable, thought there is still an abiding need for the insights they provide. The need for the thinking of these pioneers is as great today, arguably greater, than when the articles were written. Their contributions and insights must not succumb to the awful tendency of our times for scholarship to be both instant and disposable. David Julian Hodges, Ph.D. is professor of anthropology at Hunter College of the City University of New York, where he has served with distinction in several capacities: Acting Dean, School of Education; Acting Chairperson, Department of Black and Puerto Rican Studies; and President of the Faculty. Dr. Hodges has conducted ethnographic fieldwork among the Cajuns of Southwestern Louisiana and the Iban of Borneo. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Morris Brown College in Atlanta. He received his Master s degree and Ph.D. from New York University, under the tutelage of anthropologist Ethel J. Alpenfels. Dr. Hodges also engaged in post-doctoral studies at Harvard and Oxford universities.

This wide-ranging and comprehensive collection of readings shows that such issues have always been at the centre of thought about the relationship between culture and civilization The readings are divided into three sections, linking the civilization debate to political theory, to the cultural debate and to the sociology and anthropology. The substantial extracts included give students a rare chance to engage at length with classic texts to appreciate the nature of the battle between the Enlightenment and its critics which has shaped current thought. Classical Readings on Culture and Civilisation presents essays from Immanuel Kant, Adam Ferguson, Thomas Jefferson, Alexis de Tocqueville, Friedrich von Schiller, Friedrich Nietzche, Georg Simmel, Thomas Mann, Sigmund Freud, Emile Durkheim, Marcel Mauss, Lucien Febvre, Alfred Weber, Robert E. Park and Norbert Elias.
