Read full description of the books Bruxaria, Oráculos e Magia entre os Azande:This is the book that set the "writing style" for ethnography for the majority of anthropology's short history, and its a damn shame, because compared with Argonauts of the Western Pacific, it feels didactic.
He makes a couple of points in the Appendix on Field Reflections that I wish I'd read at the beginning (and indeed, that Appendix feels a lot like most introductions feel now). 1) More than analyze a society generally, he is examining a specific idea: what is rationality? In order to do this, he takes a Western definition of the idea and applies it to a group that does things that we might consider definitively irrational. 2) He keeps a literary distance as well as (he says) an actual distance out of a respect for the privilege of his own position and to respect the differences that his informants care about.
But now that I've read it from beginning to end, I think his style leaves too much out and gives the reader far too little credit.
My favorite part? Definitely the Appendix involving women giving birth to cats. Because: AWESOME.
