Book by Howes David


"The notion of sensual relations as social relations offers Howes a densely saturated framework for important new theoretical insights into Marx, Freud, and the lived reality of the Melanesian peoples." --Julia Harrison, Trent University -- (05/09/2003) "Howes's Sensual Relations is a must for anyone interested in anthropology coming to its senses. This remarkable book is a subtle and most eloquent contribution to theories of culture and the interplay of the senses, a full-bodied solution to the dry regimes of western mentality, textuality, and visuality. A model of anthropology's radical engagement with the sensuous." --Jacques Chevalier, Carleton University -- (04/09/2003) "Howes' exploration of the varying primacy of each of the senses in two Melanesian societies and in the West is a pleasure to read. His intelligence, enormous command of the literature, and the way he so convincingly chooses his arguments keep the reader fascinated throughout the whole of the book." --Carol Laderman, The City University of New York -- (05/22/2003)

Descripción de la librería

We stock books about art, design, fashion, heritage/history and gender/sexuality, specialising in books about Australian, Asian & Pacific arts, crafts design and cultural history. Since we are committed to marginalised and innovative social and cultural practices, we are more likely to have books on women artists or dissident life than coffee-table books on iconic figures. This shop is in Sydney's legendary Kings Cross area, which has provided alternatives to this country's normalcy and suburbia for the last 80 years. Colloquially known as 'The Cross', this name signifies Antipodean bohemia, streetgangs and a world-famous red light district etc. THE CROSS Art + Books is a foundation member of The Bookdealers Guild (NSW).
