An introduction to the central concerns of social anthropology, presenting an alternative to standard texts. More concerned with the life-worlds of underdevelopment than the primitive or the exotic, it draws on material which evokes current problems of policy and administration in the Third World. The author raises questions of vital importance to contemporary investigation and analysis, and pointers to the future for anthropology.
