Synthesising British, French and American traditions, this stimulating and accessible text presents a comprehensive and fascinating introduction to social and cultural anthropology. It offers an original approach by placing social and cultural anthropology in wider contexts including those of sociology and biological evolution. In doing so, it encapsulates the complexities of a discipline that addresses the structure, evolution and cultural identity of human societies up to the present day.

MEDIA REVIEWS

""Llobera's book is impressive in its comprehensive and encyclopaedic presentation of theories and key concepts relating to all aspects human societies...Although controversial, Llobera's elementary book is welcome because it opens the way for new debates and discussions in anthropology...[It] is courageous and provocative, but first of all it is a 'fresh', detailed and sophisticated introduction to an old discipline."."Social Anthropology

""This introduction to anthropology for undergraduates reflects a blend of textbooks in Europe and the US...excellent chapters."."JRAI"
