About the Author

The late Mary Douglas was professor of social anthropology at University College London. After her retirement she was an honorary research fellow there.


"Over the course of her career Ms. Douglas has become a master at discerning order in unexpected forms and surprising places. In an unassuming way, without pretense or revolutionary claims, she reveals the logic behind the varied customs of a society."-Edward Rothstein, New York Times -- Edward Rothstein * New York Times *
"The scope of Mary Douglas's syntheticising thought is admirable. Her relaxed observations across the centuries and cultural boundaries are stimulating reading for anyone interested in the patterns of narrative, a field which is often characterised by narrow tunnel vision rather than intercultural and interdisciplinary desire."-Paivi Mehtonen, Bryn Mawr Classical Review -- Paivi Mehtonen * Bryn Mawr Classical Review *
"Succinct, unpretentious, wise and, best of all, reconstructive. . . . [A] valuable contribution to cultural studies in the widest sense of the term, making one wish the term were more often stretched this finely. . . . a sagacious field guide, pleasing and teasing our tastes for turnings."-Jennifer Formichelli, Essays in Criticism -- Jennifer Formichelli * Essays in Criticism *
