The Interpenetration of the Tribal and Modern World: An Example of a World Paradigm.
Chilcott, John H.
For most of its history the science of anthropology has focused upon the influence of the city, state, and/or western civilization on tribal and peasant communities. Within the past decade a number of theories, suggesting that tribal and peasant communities have had a profound influence on cities and the modern world, have been formulated. Using archaeological and ethnographic data, this paper illustrates the application of the notion of world paradigm, the rural revolution, and modernization with particular attention paid to the world's political, economic, and communication arenas. A list of topics for student discussion is included. (DB)
