Summary

When it was first published in 1973, with a revised edition in 1983, Adam Kuper's entertaining account of half a century of British social anthropology provoked strong reactions and filled an awning gap in the market for introductory texts to social anthropology.

During the last ten years, significant developments have occurred within British and European anthropology. In this substantially revised and updated third edition, Adam Kuper takes the story up to the present day: with a new Preface, and a new final chapter, he traces the emergence of a modern European social anthropology, setting it in opposition to modern developments in American cultural anthropology. Anthropology and Anthropologists thus provides a critical and historical account of modern British social anthropology. The author describes the careers of the major theorists, their ideas and their contributionsm and analyzes the intellectual and institutional context.

This book is essential reading for all students of social anthropology and will also appeal to lay readers with an interest in the field.
