Anthro In Theory

Anthropology in Theory: Issues in Epistemology

Edited by Henrietta L. Moore and Todd Sanders

"Anthropology in Theory is a dazzling collection and Moore and Sanders have impeccable taste in theory. Their selection of readings–––an exhibit of famous voices (from Boas to Bourdieu), visionary positions (from functionalism to poststructuralism) and clarion and root concepts (from cultural pattern to cultural hybridity)–––is not only well–designed; the book is certain to be a boon to the practice of teaching anthropology in the new millennium."
