Synopsis
'Brilliant! This is just the book I have been looking for...good format and layout, and is reasonably priced.' - Dr D. Burnett, All Nationas Christian College 'Brilliant examples. I've already used 'the Japanese handkerchief' in my class.' - Dr S. Wright, University of Birmingham 'I especially like the fact that films are recommended for each chapter.' - Dr F. Hughes-Freeland, University of Wales This refreshingly clear and easy-to-read text offers the perfect introduction to social anthropology for anyone approaching the subject for the first time. It is carefully structured so that one chapter builds on the next and it covers all the core topics in an even-handed and illuminating manner, introducing the reader to the depth of divergent views on all the most basic subjects - food, hygiene, gift-exchange, rites of passage, symbolism, religion, politics and the environment. Combining an abundance of unobtrusive reference and further reading for the serious student with an immensely readable and engaging writing style, this book offers a compelling introduction to a growing and exciting subject.
