Title: Comparative analysis in anthropology
Philip Carl Salzman, Ph.D. (Chicago)is Professor of Anthropology at McGill University in Canada. He is a long time student of nomadic and pastoral peoples, and founded the Commission on Nomadic Peoples of the International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences, and the international journal Nomadic Peoples. Extensive ethnographic field research in Baluchistan (Iran), Gujarat and Rajasthan (India), and Sardinia (Italy) provided the foundation for such publications as The Anthropology of Real Life: Events in Human Experience (1999), BlackTents of Baluchistan (2000), Pastoralists: Equality, Hierarchy, and the State (2004), and Culture and Conflict in the Middle East (2008). His latest publication is Classic Comparative Anthropology: Studies from the Tradition (2012). Recent explorations in Kyrgyzstan have led to his current interests in the nomadic and pastoral peoples of Central and East Asia, with particular attention to Tibet, Inner Mongolia, Outer Mongolia, and Turkistan.
