About this book

The ultimate guide for the student encountering anthropology for the first time, this book explains and explores anthropological concepts and themes in a highly readable and easy to follow manner. Making large, complex topics both accessible and enjoyable, Peter Metcalf argues that the issues anthropology deals with are all around us - in magazines, newspapers and on television. Engaging and immensely interesting, he tackles questions such as: - What is anthropology? - How can we distinguish cultural differences from physical ones? - What is culture, anyway? - How do anthropologists study culture? - What are the key theories and approaches used today? - How has the discipline changed over time?
