Weather, Climate, Culture
     

Weather, Climate, Culture

by Sarah Strauss (Editor), Benjamin S. Orlove (Editor)
 
Like many Berg books, this is not an explicitly archaeological study ... but the topic covered is one which should have major theoretical interest for the discipline. After all, as the editors point out, "all humans experience the variations in atmospheric conditions and in meteorological phenomena that we call weather and climate".

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Strauss and Orlove's lively and interesting text is a very welcome addition to the anthropological canon [that] immediately raises the question as to why such an important and fascinating aspect of human experience has previously been studied so little. It highlights the universal importance of weather to human societies, and the consequent potential for comparative analysis, thus connecting the work with a central theoretical issue for anthropologists.” —Veronica Strang, Oceania
