About This Book

An introduction to social anthropology, dealing chapter by chapter with some of the key topics of the subject, such as kinship, politics and religion. Professor Pocock highlights the moral and intellectual relevance of social anthropology to living in the increasingly complex society of the 20th century, and by means of an interactive approach, he encourages readers to think anthropologically and gain an idea of how anthropology might tell them something about their own lives. The introduction takes stock of the developments in the field since the title's first publication.ON DISK: A comprehensive introduction to social anthropology covering the key topics and setting anthropology firmly in a cross-cultural context. The book highlights the moral and intellectual relevance of social anthropology to living in the increasingly complex society of the Twentieth Century.
