About This Item

Chur, Switzerland: Harwood Academic Publishers, 1993. This is a collection of essays that explore the development of British anthropology in the period 1880 to 1920 when it involved not just the study of custom but also included archaeology, physical anthropology, and philology; they reveal how the emergence of new approaches of the 1920s and 1930s and the triumph of social anthropology involved a narrowing of the field (brown laminated pictorial cover; a bright, clean, tight, unmarked copy in nearly perfect condtion except for a small dent on the upper edge of the front cover; in stock & available for immediate shipment from a reliable independent bookstore). Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket.
