Esta coletânea de onze artigos publicados entre 1962 e 1974 por Pierre Clastres (1934-1977) constitui um dos mais importantes trabalhos de antropologia política já divulgados. A obra reflete uma reviravolta nas ciências humanas, propiciada nos anos 1960 por autores franceses como Claude Lévi-Strauss, Michel Foucault e Gilles Deleuze. Clastres critica a razão política ocidental, aferrada em noções de dominação e subordinação, e afirma que a sociedade civil pode prescindir da figura do Estado. Para demonstrar essa tese audaz, o autor analisa a experiência de povos indígenas da América do Sul.

Like many local american citizens, Ojibwe humans esteem the knowledge, authority, and spiritual importance of outdated age, yet this recognize doesn't come simply or clearly. it's the fruit of labor, rooted in narrative traditions, ethical imaginative and prescient, and ritualized practices of decorum which are related in sophistication to these of Confucianism. while the dispossession and regulations of assimilation have threatened Ojibwe peoplehood and feature special the traditions and the elders who embrace it, Ojibwe and different Anishinaabe groups were resolute and imaginitive of their disciplined appreciate for elders. certainly, the demanding situations of colonization have served to intensify eldership in new ways.
Using archival and ethnographic study, Michael D. McNally follows the making of Ojibwe eldership, exhibiting that deference to older men and women is a part of a fuller ethical, aesthetic, and cosmological imaginative and prescient attached to the continuing circle of life—a culture of authority that has been an important to surviving colonization. McNally argues that the culture of authority and the authority of culture body a decidedly indigenous dialectic, eluding analytic frameworks of invented culture and naïve continuity. Demonstrating the wealthy chances of treating age as a class of research, McNally provocatively asserts that the elder belongs along the priest, prophet, sage, and different key figures within the learn of faith.
