Everything you ever wanted to know about anthropology, from its origins and evolution, to the key concepts and the major figures, past and present.

It traces the evolution of anthropology from its genesis in Ancient Greece to its varied forms in contemporary times.

Evans-Pritchard, Margaret Mead and Claude Levi-Strauss.
