Encyclopaedia of Social Anthropology

Henna Tabassum (Author)

Social anthropology is distinguished from subjects such as economics or political science by its holistic range and the attention it gives to the diversity of culture and society across the world and the capacity this gives the discipline to reexamine Euro American assumptions. It is differentiated from sociology, both in its main methods (based on long term participant observation and linguistic competence) and in its commitment to the relevance and illumination provided by micro studies. It extends beyond strictly social phenomena to culture, art, individuality, and cognition. While some social anthropologists use quantitative methods (Particularly those whose research touches on topics such as local economies, demography or health and illness) social anthropologists generally emphasize qualitative analysis of long-term fieldwork, rather than the more quantitative methods used by most economists or sociologists. The aim of this boo is to present a core of this subject knowledge that is desirable for students. Every attempt has been made to keep abreast of the advances in the subject and at the same time to include the fundamentals.
