Abstract

The above volume includes a series of 15 papers: 7 previously published, and 8 written explicitly for this book. "Classic Anthropology" for Bennett is the period between 1915 and 1955 (p. xi). The book jacket indicates "special attention to Ruth Benedict, Leslie Spier, Laura Thompson, Bronislaw Malinowski, Clyde Kluckhohn, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, and others". The discussion of Spier relates mainly to his work on the Plains Indians sun dance, and that of Teilhard de Chardin narrates his concept of culture, rather than any discussion of Spier's and Teilhard de Chardin's specific contributions to archaeology.
