The Anthropology of Art is the seventh in a series of international readers published by Blackwell Anthologies in Social and Cultural Anthropology. Each edited volume aims to draw readings from the most significant scholarly work in each sub-discipline of anthropology — in this case the study of art.

    The anthropology of art has focused on material objects. Less attention has been given to physical performance (music, dance, theatre) despite pioneering work by anthropologists such as Victor Turner in recent decades. Anthropological approaches to performance are different from performance studies and the field of performance. The book goes on to discuss what each discipline contributes to debates about gender, material culture and globalism in the post-colonial world. Archaeology and Anthropology offers a unique and necessary survey of how these two fields inform and enrich each other's perspective .

      This book will ultimately change your perspective on war and love. In the era of Vietnam, O'Brien writes the stories that were true to him in Author: Alex Weiss. Anthropology: The Basics provides a concise introduction to the subfields of anthropology, including the key concepts, methods, and the central questions that anthropologists have grappled with in.
