More Anthro Classics on Google

Following up on “Oneman’s latest post”:/2007/02/07/notes-and-queries-on-anthropology/#re, I thought I’d link to some other classics that are online for quick reference. They’re not hard to find but heh, I google so you don’t have to:
“Dream and Gibes”: – the poetry of Edward Sapir

“Language”: by Edward Sapir

“Primitive Society”: by Robert Lowie

“Mind of Primitive Man”: (thanks Oneman!)

“Principles of Sociology”: Herbert Spencer

“Myth, Ritual, and Religion”: Andrew Lang

“Suicide”: by Durkheim (in French)

“Head-Hunters Black, White, and Brown”:

These are just the ones with PDF downloads. Many more are available full-text. They even have copies of old issues of American Anthropologist on there (sssshh — Don’t tell the AnthroSource business model!)


Alex Golub is an associate professor of anthropology at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. His book Leviathans at The Gold Mine has been published by Duke University Press. You can contact him at

  1. According to Google: “for users outside the U.S., we make determinations [about pdf downloads] based on appropriate local laws.”

    A quick search indicates that users in India and the Czech Republic can download pdfs; I presume there are lots of other countries where this is possible.

    Canada seems to be one of the restrictive countries … unless I am missing something. Any suggestions anyone?
