With a breadth and depth that no single-authored source could provide, A New History of Anthropology collects original writings from pre-eminent scholars in the field, to create the most complete and comprehensive book of its kind.

Situating ideas and practices within the context of their time and place of origin, A New History of Anthropology begins with an examination of the prehistory of the field, during the 'age of exploration'. The volume then continues its evaluation by examining the various anthropological traditions present in the field’s early work, discussing the numerous topical issues that arose in the field as it evolved, and looking into anthropology’s future by considering its relationship with other disciplines and its own disputed history, all through the lens of a new global perspective.

Sophisticated but accessible, A New History of Anthropology is an ideal tool for both the teaching and learning of the history of anthropology.
