This anthology provides a single-volume overview of the essential theoretical debates in the anthropology of art. Drawing together significant work in the field from the second half of the twentieth century, it enables readers to appreciate the art of different cultures at different times. This work: advances a cross-cultural concept of art that moves beyond traditional distinctions between Western and non-Western art; provides the basis for the appreciation of art of different cultures and times; and, enhances readers' appreciation of the aesthetics of art and of the important role it plays in human society.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The Anthropology of Art is a superb compilation that enables both scholar and student to have in one volume the major studies and debates in this discipline. In the insightful introduction, the editors survey the history of the field and tackle the vexing problem of defining art in cross-cultural perspective." Ivan Karp, Emory University "An excellent, near-perfect book that demonstrates the centrality of the anthropology of art in both anthropology and art history debates. The essential reader for anyone who wants a broad, stimulating introduction to the field." Jeremy MacClancy, Oxford Brookes University"Addresses significant debates ... .Seems[s] to provide an understanding of the often subtle but underlying discourse on contemporary African art." H-Net Reviews "A unique and timely manual that serves to connect the student with the creative impulse of man." The Electric Review
