John Monaghan con Social and Cultural Anthropology: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) (English Edition)

If you want to know what anthropology is, look at what anthropologists do.

This Very Short Introduction to Social and Cultural Anthropology combines an accessible account of some of the disciplines guiding principles and methodology with abundant examples and illustrations of anthropologists at work.

Peter Just and John Monaghan begin by discussing anthropologys most important contributions to modern thought: its investigation of culture as a distinctively human characteristic, its doctrine of cultural relativism, and its methodology of fieldwork and ethnography. They then examine specific ways in which social and cultural anthropology have advanced our understanding of human society and culture, drawing on examples from their own fieldwork. The book ends with an assessment of
anthropologys present position, and a look forward to its likely future.
