Maria Kelly
Textbook for Introduction to Anthropology course at my university. Explains anthropological concepts very well so that someone who has never studied the subject before (like me) can easily grasp it. Interesting case studies presented throughout to reinforce concepts.
Brilliant textbook that takes a pragmatic and multi-disciplinary approach to beginner's anthropological knowledge. Case studies present aspects of field work to the student, a critical element in anthropology that is typically lacking in primary ANTH education. Easy to follow with a superb glossary. One of the best texts I've used to date.
