Hendry guides her readers through the breadth and depth of the discipline whilst simultaneously transmitting a profound sense of why anthropology is a field to be passionate about. Much of the book's success lies in its lively, engaging and accessible style: Hendry has a knack of simplifying complex arguments and making anthropological ideas not only interesting but also fun.
This is the book I reach for first as a teacher because of its topical breadth, attention to history, and the sheer excitement it conveys about what an anthropological gaze can offer. Joy Hendry dazzles with provocative questions, compelling stories, and profound answers. Review quote "This is the book that every social anthropology student needs. Rating details.
