About the Author

Brian Morris Emeritus Professor of Anthropology,Goldsmiths College, University of London


'Provides a unique insight into a culture that enjoys a rich and varied relationship with animals ... Extensive detail provides a superb view into the social life of rural Malawi... Although based upon examination of a single culture, Morris incorporates ecological and anthropological concepts that expand this study of attitudes to nature to create a comprehensive ethnographic analysis, both informative and very readable.' Choice 'The Power of Animals deserves to become an anthropological landmark, setting the stage for a new generation of ethnographies that give proper weight and significance to people's interactions and interrelations with other animals and the natural world. The cultural depth and richness that emerges from Morris's approach makes other comparable studies seem shallow in comparison.' Anthrozoos
