This introduction to anthropological theory, written for undergraduate students, reviews the ideas that have inspired anthropologists in their studies of societies around the world. It offers a clear and concise analysis of the key theories, past and present, and traces the way in which they have been translated into anthropological debates. It shows how various theoretical perspectives have shaped competing, or complementary, accounts of specific ethnographic finds.
