From the Back Cover:

The Concise Dictionary of Social and Cultural Anthropology is an accessible, hands-on guide to the hundreds of terms a student of anthropology or general reader will encounter in dealing with anthropological and ethnographic literature. It includes related terminology from allied fields such as sociology, economics and geography.

The focus is on key concepts in anthropology, with a number of biographies included to identify influential figures who have formulated central theories and conducted its most famous field research among other cultures around the world. Extensive bibliographical references provide pointers for further research.

Anthropology is a relatively young discipline with a complex history. Its research encompasses hundreds of cultures and provides a valuable perspective on an increasingly globalized world. 

Written by a researcher and librarian expert in the fields of social and cultural anthropology, this Concise Dictionary offers an invaluable reference to the terminology and accomplishments of this far-reaching and diverse field.

About the Author:

Mike Morris is the anthropology subject consultant for Oxford University’s Bodleian Libraries. For over 20 years, he has also managed the library at the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology in Oxford.
