This is just the book I have been looking for It is without doubt one of the best introductory texts to social and cultural anthropology that exists. Written in lucid, jargon-free prose and in a style that is both personal and engaging, Hendry once again demonstrates her extraordinary gift for explaining and rendering accessible even the most complex ideas and arguments.

This book goes a long way towards bridging the gap between the general public and academic anthropology. It is essential reading for any newcomer to the subject. Hendry conveys key principles in an accessible way without ever losing sight of what it is that makes anthropology such a dynamic and exciting field.

Hendry deals with a broad range of topics -- from what it means to do fieldwork to the classical contributions that have shaped anthropological discourse; from individual symbols to larger constellations of cultural and social organization.

The further research sections at the end of each chapter add to the value of the book and the two new chapters, on tourism and on globalization, draw us further into how anthropologists seek to understand contemporary realities.

The enlarged new edition of this useful and informative book is easy to recommend. A very welcome second edition. She specializes in the study of Japan, but has also done fieldwork in Morocco, Canada and Mexico, and has made recent visits to China, Indonesia, Nepal and Uzbekistan.
