About This Book

What is Economic Anthropology

The field of economic anthropology is one that endeavors to provide an explanation for human economic behavior throughout the broadest possible historical, geographical, and cultural period. The fields of economics and anthropology are brought together in this work. Anthropologists are the ones who engage in this practice, and it has a complicated relationship with the field of economics, which is a discipline that it is extremely important to. The work of Bronislaw Malinowski, the Polish father of anthropology, and Marcel Mauss, a Frenchman, on the nature of reciprocity as an alternative to market exchange was the impetus for the development of this subfield of anthropology. To a large extent, the field of economic anthropology is concerned with the study of trading.
