About this item
This comprehensive anthology offers over forty readings that are critical to an understanding of anthropological theory and the development of anthropology as an academic discipline.
The fifth edition maintains a strong grounding in both classical and contemporary anthropological theory with a sharpened focus on gender and anthropology and the anthropology of new media and technology. Short introductions and key terms accompany every reading, and light annotations have been added throughout. Read on its own, or paired with A History of Anthropological Theory, this anthology offers an unrivaled introduction to anthropological theory that reflects not only the history, but also the changing nature of the discipline today.
