Europe in the anthropological imagination

edited by Susan Parman

Appropriate for undergraduate and graduate level anthropology courses covering Europe, including Peoples and Cultures of Europe; European Ethnography; and Mediterranean Ethnography, as well as courses on the History of Anthropology. This is a provocative, reflective book about how American anthropologists study Europe. But, since anthropology has traditionally been defined as a field that studies the non-western, exotic Other, an anthropological study of Europe would appear to be a misnomer. In a larger sense, then, it offers insights into the manner in which ideas emerge and evolve within a discipline. The book is composed of fourteen essays by twelve anthropologists who addresshow, when, where, and why they first began to study Europe and the implications of those studies for the development of anthropology in general.
