Audio Tapes
Quantity in Basket: none
Code: 974T711
Price: $26.00
Teachers: Robbie Davis-Floyd, Ph.D.
Content: Detailed introduction to anthropology. Learn about other cultures, myths, rituals and gender roles. Historical view of development of societies from a feminist perspective. Looks at the development of human society and culture from matri-focal, hunter-gatherer ones to today's patriarchal, agricultural-based one. Birth is a microcosm of society's core values. There has been a drastic change of lifestyle from one that is close to nature to one that is distant. Birth rituals in hospitals today are saddening and frightening. Robbie explores the power of technology and the loss of intuition and hands-on skills of midwives. Highly recommended for all levels.
