Sharing my collection of reading materials on culture, tradition, and beliefs around the world. Ethnographies are the product of scientific anthropological studies of people to describe certain societies. These materials are best to picture and describe our humanity as a whole. Enjoy!

This classic paperback is available once again--and exclusively--from Harvard University Press. This book is the story of the life of Nisa, a member of the !Kung tribe of hunter-gatherers from southern Africa's Kalahari desert. Told in her own words--earthy, emotional, vivid--to Marjorie Shostak, a Harvard anthropologist who succeeded, with Nisa's collaboration, in breaking through the immense barriers of language and culture, the story is a fascinating view of a remarkable woman.

Dealing in Desire takes an in-depth and often personal look at both the *** workers and their clients to show how Vietnamese high finance and benevolent giving are connected to the intimate spheres of the informal economy.
