Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Daily Life of the Inuit is the first serious study of contemporary Inuit culture and communities from the post-World War II period to the present. Beginning with an introductory essay surveying Inuit prehistory, geography, and contemporary regional diversity, this exhaustive treatment explores the daily life of the Inuit throughout the North American Arctic—in Alaska, Canada, and Greenland.

Twelve thematic chapters acquaint the reader with the daily life of the contemporary Inuit, examining family, intellectual culture, economy, community, politics, technology, religion, popular culture, art, sports and recreation, health, and international engagement. Each chapter begins with a discussion of the historical and cultural underpinnings of Inuit life in the North American Arctic and describes the issues and events relevant to the contemporary Inuit experience. Leading sources are quoted to provide analysis and perspective on the facts presented.

Book News Annotation:

The Inuit are an Arctic people indigenous to the tundra regions of Alaska, Northern Canada, and Greenland. This reference for students in high school and up begins with an overview of ancient history, different cultural groups of the Inuit, their encounters with explorers, and modern developments. Individual chapters cover historical and contemporary life of the Inuit in the areas of family and community, language, economy, and religion, as well as recreation, popular culture, visual arts, medicine and health care, and the Inuit in international political arenas. The reference includes acronyms and abbreviations, a chronology from ancient times to the present, a glossary of terms, and a glossary of places mentioned in the book, plus b&w contemporary photos. Stern teaches anthropology at Simon Fraser University, British Columbia. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

This wide-ranging treatment of daily life in the contemporary Inuit communities of Alaska, Canada, and Greenland reveals the very modern ways of being Inuit.

Synopsis:

What is it like to live surrounded by the harsh climate and stark landscapes of the Arctic tundra? While there is considerable scholarly literature on the Inuit in a particular place or touching on a specific issue such as religion or hunting, no recent scholarship has attempted to provide a broad description of this intriguing cultureuntil now.

Synopsis:

• Describes contemporary Inuit life in Canada, Alaska, and Greenland, conveying such information as the fact that the development of literature in Inuktitut, the Inuit language, is hampered by the existence of multiple writing systems

• Presents Inuit culture from an Inuit point of view, underscoring that today's Inuit culture is vibrant, modern, and adaptive

• Includes multiple illustrative examples drawn from ethnographies, the news, and the author's own fieldwork
