About this book

Although humans slumber for approximately one third of our lives, sleep itself is vastly understudied. This volume provides a comparative frame through which we can understand the myriad ways in which sleep reflects and embodies culture as contributors examine aspects of sleep in various countries and contexts.

Reviews

"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
