Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. (Herman) Max Gluckman (26 January 1911 - 13 April 1975) was a South African-born British social anthropologist. He grew up in South Africa, working later under the British Administration in Northern Rhodesia (esp. on the Barotse law, in what is now the Western Province, Zambia). He was educated at the University of the Witwatersrand, and at Exeter College, Oxford on a Rhodes Scholarship. He directed the Rhodes-Livingstone Institute (1941-1947), before becoming the first professor of social anthropology at the University of Manchester (1949), where he founded what became known, including many of his Rhodes-Livingstone Institute colleagues along with his students, as the Manchester school of anthropology. One feature of the Manchester School that derives from Gluckman's early training in law was the emphasis on "case studies" involving analysis of instances of social interaction to infer rules and assumptions.show more
