This lively book offers a fresh look at the history of anthropological theory. Anthropological ideas about human diversity have always been rooted in the socio-political conditions in which they arose, and exploring them in context helps students understand how and why they evolved, and how theory relates to life and society. Mark Moberg’s engaging text moves away from the dry recitation of past viewpoints in anthropology and brings the subject matter to life.

Mark Moberg is Professor of Anthropology at the University of South Alabama. He is the author or co-editor of five books, including Slipping Away: Banana Politics and Fair Trade in the Eastern Caribbean .
