I did skip some of this book due to class constraints but I was forced to read most of it so I am counting the book as being read. I thought the information provided was very valuable. I had to struggle with the jargon some of the time but that got better the further in the class I got. It was a little dry and that also caused me to sigh while reading, but for an introduction to the theories of Anthropology it was good introduction. The footnotes were mostly helpful but I thoughts some of the commentary by the editors was unneeded. This is another book I will referring to for future Anthropology classes.

Great introductions to the history of Anthropology with a lot of prominent authors and interesting articles. Read the footnotes! They are a life saver.
