The strength and diversity of anthropological theorizing during the 20th century is demonstrated in 57 articles and essays. The goal is not to present the theories themselves, but to illustrate the practice of engaging with theory, particular ways of thinking, analyzing, and reflecting that have emerged in the context of the discipline. Almost every well known anthropologist appears, with the notable exception of Margaret Mead. Among the topics pondered are culture and behavior, language and method, coherence and contingency, and the anthropology of Western modes of thought. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
