Scholars have been trying to explain taboo customs ever since Captain Cook discovered them in Polynesia over 200 years ago. The subject has been treated at length, but none of the theories has more than a limited validity, so numerous are the taboos recorded and so diverse the societies in which they occur. This book contains chapters on: · Taboo as a Victorian invention · The complicated taboos in the Pentateuch · Taboos in Polynesia Originally published in 1956.

In traditional societies, there existed and still exist clear rules around the way specifi c relationships should work; and these rules determined whether any emotional attachment could develop or not. In Western society today, with its emphasis on the signifi cance of the individuals emotions, these boundaries may blur. Taboo tells the story of one such blurring. The true-life nature of this relationship is not important here, rather its specifi c and intimate journey

Taboo looks at the ethnographer and sexuality in anthropological fieldwork and considers the many roles that sexuality plays in the anthropological production of knowledge and texts. How does the sexual identity that anthropologists have in their "home" society affect the kind of sexuality they are allowed to express in other cultures? How is the anthropologists' sexuality perceived by the people with whom he or she does research? How common is sexual violence and intimidation in the field and why is its existence virtually unmentioned in anthropology? These are but a few of the questions to be confronted, exploring from differing perspectives the depth of the influence this tabooed topic has on the entire practice and production of anthropology. A long-overdue text for all students and lecturers of anthropology, many post-fieldwork readers will find a resonance of issues they have previously faced (or tried to avoid) and those who are still to undertake fieldwork will find articles that refer to other kinds of personal and professional experience as well as providing invaluable preparations for coping in the field.

Excerpt from Taboo: A Legend Retold From the Dirghic of Sævius Nicanor, With Prolegomena, Notes, and a Preliminary Memoir I know, be employed to interpret the dicta Of Ackermann and Macrobius, or even the canons Of Doctors Matthews and Sherman herein cited, and thus open dire vistas wherein critic would prey on critic, and the most respectable would be locked in fratricidal strife. Moreover, I have applied your method to many Of the Mother Goose rhymes with rather curious results. But happily, I have here to confess to you, not any disputable literary standards I may harbor, but only my nu arguable debt.
