About the Author
Praise For Sleep Around the World: Anthropological Perspectives (Culture)…
"Sleep is understudied in anthropology - and there are remarkably few published resources available. This is not only ironic because of the many sleep-related experiences of fieldworkers, but because all human beings spend approximately one-third of their lives asleep - quite a lot of time to go by unexamined. The study of sleep is of tremendous and increasing popular (as well as academic) interest and this book will remain fresh for a long time. It will appeal to anthropologists in general, particularly medical, psychological, and cultural anthropologists." - Shelley R. Adler, Professor, University of California, San Francisco, USA
