About the book:

I had to pick this up for my anthropology class. I was excited to learn about the subject, but I was dismayed when I saw this book. It's dense, with no pictures. I started reading it because I had to and I was surprised at how interesting it was. It covers a very wide range of topics, from the classics to somewhat modern ones. This textbook is really just a bunch of articles bound up as a textbook, with a couple introductions. (Which are one of the best parts.) So don't expect it to be some kind of 101 book for the subject. Keep in mind that this book is a compilation of essays from many different well-known experts on the subject, some of which aren't too neutral in their opinions. Also, some of these opinions might be a bit dated. Even though it is intended as a textbook for people who have been studying the subject, it's interesting enough, and readable enough that you can pick it up without any previous knowledge and still enjoy it.
