Visions of Culture: An Introduction to Anthropological Theories and Theorists, Fifth Edition, has been updated and expanded and provides a succinct, clear, and balanced introduction to theoretical developments in the field. The key ideas of thirty major theorists are briefly described and-unique to this textbook-linked to the biographical and fieldwork experiences that helped shape their theories. The impact of each scholar on contemporary anthropology is presented, along with numerous examples, quotations from the theorists' writings, and a description of the broader intellectual setting in which these anthropologists worked. In addition to six new chapters, Moore has updated all the profiles to incorporate recent scholarship. The book is linked to the companion work, Visions of Culture: A Reader, Second Edition, to encourage the fullest intellectual engagement for students.
