Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first introductory guide to explore both biological and cultural approaches to the study of humanity, from the origin of our species, to traits that we all share, to the vast range of our sacred rites and rituals. Hendry and Underdown bring anthropology to life with case studies, explaining why witchcraft was so feared in colonial Salem but embraced in Sudan and elsewhere and what our relationship with mobile phones (and even the bathroom) tells us about ourselves. Joy Hendry is Professor of Social Anthropology at Oxford Brookes University in the UK and is author of Sharing Our Worlds: An Introduction to Social Anthropology. Simon Underdown is Senior Lecturer in Biological Anthropology also at Brookes University in Oxford.
