Small Places, Large Issues - Fourth Edition : An Introduction to Social and Cultural Anthropology Paperback

Part of the Anthropology, Culture and Society series

Description

This introduction to social and cultural anthropology has become a modern classic, revealing the rich global variation in social life and culture across the world.

Presenting a clear overview of anthropology, it focuses on central topics such as kinship, ethnicity, ritual and political systems, offering a wealth of examples that demonstrate the enormous scope of anthropology and the importance of a comparative perspective.

Unlike other texts on the subject, Small Places, Large Issues incorporates the anthropology of complex modern societies.

Using reviews of key works to illustrate his argument, Thomas Hylland Eriksen's lucid and accessible overview remains an established introductory text in anthropology.This fourth edition is updated throughout and increases the emphasis on the interdependence of human worlds.

It incorporates recent debates and controversies, ranging from globalisation and migration research to problems of cultural translation, and discusses the challenges of interdisciplinarity in a lucid way.
