Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Cultural scholarship has grown to depend upon people like Clifford Geertz for the conceptual tools required for such studies. Representations, events, societies, individuals, institutions, economies, material practices, et al, interact with such a degree of complexity that conceptual tools and methods, such as those discussed in these essays, allow anyone interested in exploring the meaning of culture the opportunity to ride the avalanche of symbols which both clarify and confuse that meaning.

It's difficult to understand, but you will learn more about anthropology than you did before. I had to read a lot of Geertz as an anthropology student, so you sort of get used to it. This was something I didn't necessarily mind reading or keeping for reference.

Format: Paperback
This is composisted of short essays after he published the excellent masterpiece, "The interpritation of culture". It is not easy reading because of his writing style. However, it makes more sense to understand what is Anthropology and how undrstand culture.
