 DESCRIPTION
spacer
The International Encyclopaedia of Anthropology brings together some of the most important works to appear in this creative phase of the discipline. The seventies and eighties mark a turning point in the direction and identity of anthropology and the articles included in this encyclopaedia pertain to some of these major theoretical and methodological debates and emerging issues. Some of the articles present entirely seminal point of view and may be read as initiators of fresh theoretical debates. Others are carrying forward existing theories or adding a fresh perspective to old ones. The ethnographic material included in the encyclopaedia is global in its scope and contains data from all over the world, pertaining to every type of society and culture. Special care has been taken to include material which is important to understanding the scope and application of anthropology as a discipline. The articles have been arranged theme wise in the successive volumes and cover all major areas like culture, behaviour, religious beliefs and practices, kinship, gender, medical anthropology, political anthropology, ecological anthropology, research methodology, practicing anthropology, ethnicity and identity, sexuality and culture, family and marriage etc. The holistic nature of the discipline makes it impossible to segregate individual themes completely, but care has been taken that the articles are not only bound by a common thread but also covers most dimensions of the major themes. The contributors to this set include reputed scholars from all parts of the world. These include names like Raymond Firth, Francis Hsu, Mary Douglas, Robin Fox, Lawrence Babb, J.K. Doolan, Michel Verdon, Marc J. Swartz, Frank A. Solomon, Martin K. Whyte, Andrew Strathern, David G. Mandelbaum, Melford Spiro, Laura Nader, Walter Goldschmidt, and many other such great scholars.
