Summary

The perspective of social anthropology is broadening to include the changing realities of both traditional and modern people. Anthropologists such as Oscar Lewis, Marvin Harris, Margaret Mead, Frederick Barth, and others represented in this volume apply comparative analysis to a wide spectrum of human groups--from urban villages to nomadic tribesmen. Anthropological Realities offers an up-to-date introduction to the standard areas of language, ritual, politics, and economics. In addition, special focus is given to the most current trends in field research. Essays on urbanization, Third World development, ethnicity, and professional ethics provide complte coverage of anthropology today.

Jeanne Guillemin is associate professor of Sociology and Anthropology, Boston College.
