Product Description

Ancient Palestine's values seem quite different from the modern industrial West's. Bruce Malina, long in the forefront of cultural anthropology, illumines questions of honor and shame, individual vs. group identity, envy and the evil eye, kinship and marriage, cleanness vs. uncleanness. This third edition has been revised and expanded, offering new chapters on envy and the Jesus movement, updates chapters from earlier editions, augments the bibliography and has tear out study pages for students.
