Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When it was first published in 1973, with a revised edition in 1983, Adam Kuper's entertaining account of half a century of British social anthropology provoked strong reactions and filled an awning gap in the market for introductory texts to social anthropology. <BR>During the last ten years, significant developments have occurred within British and European anthropology. In this substantially revised and updated third edition, Adam Kuper takes the story up to the present day: with a new Preface, and a new final chapter, he traces the emergence of a modern European social anthropology, setting it in opposition to modern developments in American cultural anthropology. "Anthropology and Anthropologists" thus provides a critical and historical account of modern British social anthropology. The author describes the careers of the major theorists, their ideas and their contributionism and analyzes the intellectual and institutional context. <BR>This book is essential reading for all students of social anthropology and will also appeal to lay readers with an interest in the field.

Synopsis:

This volume traces the emergence of a modern European social anthropology, setting it in opposition to modern developments in American cultural anthropology. The significant developments in British and European anthropology between 1983 and 1995 are covered in this revised edition.

Synopsis:

On its first publication in 1973 Adam Kuper's entertaining history of half a century of British social anthropology provoked strong reactions. But his often irreverent account soon established itself as one of the introductions to anthropology.

Since the second revised edition was published in 1983, important developments have occurred within British and European anthropology.

This third, enlarged and updated edition responds to these fresh currents. Adam Kuper takes the story up to the present day, and a new final chapter traces the emergence of a modern European social anthropology in contrast with developments in American cultural anthropology over the last two decades.

Anthropology and Anthropologists provides a critical historical account of modern British social anthropology: it describes the careers of the major theorists, their ideas and their contributions in the context of the intellectual and institutional environments in which they worked.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [197]-205) and indexes.
