Trail of the Hare
Environment and Stress in a Sub-Arctic Community
- This format is currently out of stock.
In this second edition of his classic work, Joel Savishinsky expands and updates his highly acclaimed study of mobility and stress in a sub-Arctic community of Hare Indians. Since the publication of the first edition, the Hare have faced new challenges posed by clashes between aboriginal and contemporary values in the spheres of ecology, culture and politics - from the Hare's rising ethnic and political awareness as a "Fourth World" community to cultural disagreements over animal rights and environmental preservation. The second edition reframes the context of Savishinsky's original conclusions on human-animal relations, environmentalism and native-white encounters to accommodate these new developments as well as current trends in anthropology itself.
