An Anthropological Toolkit: Sixty Useful Concepts (Paperback)

£9.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Presenting 60 theoretical ideas, David Zeitlyn asks, 'How to write about anthropological theory without making a specific theoretical argument?' and 'Is it possible to practice anthropology without arguing for a single specific approach?' To answer, he gives a series of mini essays about an eclectic collection of theoretical concepts that over many years he has found helpful. The book celebrates the muddled inconsistencies in the ways that humans live their messy lives. However, for all the mess, there are patterns discernable: the actors can understand what is going on, they see an event unfolding in ways that are familiar, as belonging to a certain type and therefore, Zeitlyn suggests, so can researchers.
