Introducing Anthropology is the first book of its kind. It offers a serious but accessible introduction to anthropology and is the perfect starting point for anyone new to the subject. Across a series of fourteen chapters, the book addresses the different fields and approaches within anthropology, covers an extensive range of themes, and emphasizes the role of anthropology in the world today.Written by two authors with a passion for teaching and a commitment to communicating the excitement of anthropology, the book has been carefully designed to support and extend students' learning. Each chapter includes: clear explanations of classic and contemporary anthropological research; help with connecting anthropological theories to real-life issues; links to globalization; interviews with key anthropologists about their work and the discipline as a whole; a lively range of activities and discussion points; ideas for personal investigations; suggested ethnographic films and further reading; a clear glossary; a focus on developing examination and writing skills. Introducing Anthropology aims to inspire and enthuse a new generation of anthropologists. It is suitable for a range of different readers, from students studying anthropology at school-level, to university students looking for a clear and engaging anthropology primer.
