History of Anthropology

George W. Stocking, Jr., and Richard Handler, Series Editors

THIS SERIES IS COMPLETE

Original Series Description
Established in 1983, and edited for many years by George W. Stocking, Jr., this series covers the history and present practice of anthropological inquiry.

More than most disciplines, anthropology pays attention to its own history, because more than most scholars, anthropologists understand that the knowledge they produce is always conditioned by its cultural and historical context. History of Anthropology is the premiere venue for scholarship that traces the historical connections between anthropologists, their research, their institutional resources, and the sociopolitical setting of their work. Each volume gathers essays selected to speak to a particular theme, while the series as a whole ranges across the entire history of anthropology, in its different national traditions.
