Synopsis

Synthesising British, French and American traditions, this stimulating and accessible text presents a comprehensive and fascinating introduction to social and cultural anthropology. It offers an original approach by placing social and cultural anthropology in wider contexts including those of sociology and biological evolution. In doing so, it encapsulates the complexities of a discipline that addresses the structure, evolution and cultural identity of human societies up to the present day.
