Editorial Reviews


Praise for the second edition:

"For many anthropologists, the existence of this second edition might serve as an inspiration for the making of an anthropology of their own hearts and minds.  The suggested landscape calls for a pursuit of personal disciplinary interests and explorations that make sense and knowledge of the self, other and world are mutually implicated.  As such, it is a book for students and professionals alike." -Social Anthropology


Praise for the first edition:

'Well written, full of ideas, often interesting and provocative. It should be of use to both teachers and advanced students of anthropology.' - Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute
