Over three hundred of the most influential and significant figures in world anthropology are discussed, from the precursors of anthropology, such as Darwin, through celebrated figures such as Evans-Pritchard and Margaret Mead, to lesser-known and more controversial names such as Arthur Maurice Hocart and Carlos Castaneda. The entries provide details of each anthropologist's life and work, theories and publications." "Written by an experienced social anthropologist, The Routledge Dictionary of Anthropologists will interest students of the discipline and those with an interest in ethnology and sociology."--Jacket."
