Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Other Cultures" provides a lucid introduction to the relatively new field of social anthropology. The author devotes the first part of the book to a consideration of what social anthropology is and seeks to do, what areas it covers, and the methods of investigation employed by social anthropologists. <P>The second part discusses the major categories of research through which social anthropologies have advanced our knowledge of other cultures. These include marriage, kinship, political organization, law, economic and property relations, magic, religion, and social change. The final chapter surveys some of the contributions social anthropology has made to the understanding of other cultures. A short reading list follows each chapter. <P>"Other Cultures" will be valuable as a text or as supplementary reading for introductory courses in Anthropology, especially Social and Cultural Anthropology.
