by Unknown Author


This comprehensive anthology presents 34 readings that are critical to an understanding of anthropological theory and the development of anthropology as an academic discipline. The readings have broad anthropological appeal, emphasizing cultural anthropology in the North American and European traditions.Thematic coverage begins with nineteenth-century foundations and forerunners, before moving on to the early and mid-twentieth century when anthropology comes of age. The last section looks at numerous late twentieth-century and early twenty-first-century developments in anthropological theory, including feminist anthropology, postmodernity, medical anthropology, and globalization.Comments:"Erickson and Murphy have managed to encompass the theoretical breadth and ethnographic scope of the anthropological enterprise, and have produced a volume that will be of great pedagogical value. Their own contributions lead the student gracefully through diverse anthropological approaches, perspectives, and arguments-and out the other end into (post-)modernity. A valuable resource!" - Jon Marks, University of North Carolina, Charlotte"This volume offers an excellent selection of the classics of anthropological theory with thoughtful commentary by the editors. An indispensable teaching text." - Anne Meneley, Trent UniversityPaul A. Erickson is Professor in the Department of Anthropology at St. Mary's University in Halifax. Liam D.
