About the Author:

Laura Pountney is an Anthropology Senior Examiner and teaches at Colchester Sixth Form College
Tomislav Maric teaches anthropology at Heston Community School

Review:

"A lively and comprehensive introduction to a broad range of anthropological themes, peppered with ethnographic examples showcasing the diversity of human lives and societies, this book fills a gap and not only reveals the knowledge contributions of anthropology but also gives a hint of its magic."
Thomas Hylland Eriksen, University of Oslo

"A thorough introduction to anthropology which is as engaging as it is informative. A must-read for all students starting in the subject, as well as an excellent book for those who simply want to know more about the subject matter and methods of anthropology."
Dave Latham, Birmingham Metropolitan College

"A classroom text written by teachers for teachers. I cannot recommend it highly enough."
David Shankland, Director, Royal Anthropological Institute
