A&S 223 The Anthropology of Politics

The cultural dimensions of power will be examined in a comparative framework, exploring in depth a non-Western setting such as village Mexico or Africa and Western settings such as the Mafia or college committees. The emphasis is on how individuals use power within their culture, be it a village or an office.
