Anthropology and Anthropologists
The British School in the Twentieth-Century (Fourth Edition)
Adam Kuper‘s Anthropology and Anthropologists: The British School in the Twentieth-Century (Fourth Edition; Routledge, 2014) is an excellent, comprehensive tour through one of the most important and influential schools of anthropological theory, easily ranking alongside the Structuralist school of Claude-Levi Strauss and the Historical Particularist school of Franz Boas. In this concise, but comprehensive edition, Kuper explores the characters and ideas that built the school through both collaboration and conflict. It is an easy, accessible introduction that satisfies the reader’s anthropological curiosity while providing plenty of resources to take the exploration farther afield.
