Informazioni sull'autore (1969)

Melville Jean Herskovits, an American anthropologist who was a student of Franz Boas at Columbia University, became a leading student of acculturation and an outstanding teacher at Northwestern University, where he founded the first U.S. program in African Studies in 1951. He did work in Surinam, Haiti, Trinidad, and Brazil, but his major research was on African blacks and the forced relocation of their culture to the New World. He studied religion, music, and folklore, and was particularly interested in how culture influences the arts.
