Description: This unique work, draws on a close analysis of the egalitarian communal way some Amazonian peoples live to show how they produce and maintain a deeply cherished, tranquil and intimate life. The contributors reveal that (western) representations of these cultures are more often than not misleading or incorrect, labeling these peoples as primitive, "warlike" and fierce when in fact their lives are based on love and conviviality.

With case studies from across the South American region, ranging from the Yanomami of Venezuela and Brazil to the Enxet of Paraguay, and discussions on a vast array of topics from the effects of laughter, the role of language, and homesickness, The Anthropology of Love and Anger will be fascinating reading for all those with an interest in post-colonial studies and anthropology.
