This comprehensive anthology offers over 40 readings that are critical to the understanding of anthropological theory and the development of anthropology as an academic discipline. The fourth edition maintains a strong focus on the "four-field" roots of the discipline in North America but has been reorganized with a new section on twenty-first-century theory, including coverage of postcolonial and public anthropology. New key terms and introductions accompany each reading and a revamped glossary makes the book more student-friendly. Used on its own, or together with the overview text A History of Anthropological Theory, Fourth Edition, this anthology offers a flexible and unrivaled introduction to anthropological theory that reflects not only the history but also the changing nature of the discipline today.

About the Author:

Paul A. Erickson is Professor and Chair of the Department of Anthropology at St. Mary's University in Halifax.

Review:

Erickson and Murphy's fourth edition of Readings for a History of Anthropological Theory provides an outstanding introduction to key analysts and themes. The overview sections, chapter introductions, identification of key words, and study questions will help students contextualize the material. Both instructors and students will find this a useful and valuable collection. (A.H. Peter Castro, Syracuse University)

While no single book can ever encapsulate entirely the broad scope of anthropology, Erickson and Murphy have provided the best and most comprehensive set of readings available, including a wide, yet balanced, range of theoretical perspectives. Importantly, the editors provide well-written intellectual and historical context for each set of readings, demonstrating how each of the featured scholars fits into the larger anthropological discourse. In addition, each chapter finishes with thoughtful study questions as well as a list of suggested readings. Students of the history of anthropological theory will find this text to be a powerful learning tool. (Barbara E. Erickson, California State University, Fullerton)
