COWS, PIGS, WARS, AND WITCHES

COWS, PIGS, WARS, AND WITCHES

The Riddles of Culture

By Marvin Harris. One of America's leading anthropolgists offers answers to the perplexing question of why people behave the way they do. Why do Hindus worship cows? Why do Jews and Muslims refuse to eat pork? Why did so many people in post-medieval Europe believe in witches? Harris addresses these and other queries about human behavior, showing that no matter how bizarre a people's behavior may seem, it always stems from identifiable and intelligble sources.
