Stone Age Ecomics is a classic study of anthropological ecomics, first published in 1974. As Marshall Sahlinsstated in the first edition, It has been inspired by the possibility of 'anthropological ecomics,' a perspective indebted rather to the nature of the primitive ecomies than to the categories of a bourgeois science. Ambitiously tackling the nature of ecomic life and how to study it comparatively, the book includes six studies which reflect the author's ideas on revising traditional views of the hunter-gatherer and so-called primitive societies, revealing them to be the original affluent society. The book examines tions of production, distribution and exchange in early communities and examines the link between ecomics and cultural and social factors. It consists of a set of detailed and closely related studies of tribal ecomies, of domestic production for livelihood, and of the submission of domestic production to the material and political demands of society at large.
Marshall Sahlins is one of the most prominent American anthropologists of our time. He holds the title of Charles F. Grey Distinguished Service Professor of Anthropology at the University of Chicago, USA. His most recent book is How Natives Think: About Captain Cook, for Example.
