This is the first synthesis of modern economic anthropology for undergraduates and graduate students. Going to the heart of the emerging sub-discipline, this book identifies the fundamental practical and theoretical problems that give economic anthropology its unique strengths and vision. Tracing the history of the dialogue between anthropology and economics, the authors move economic anthropology beyond the narrow concerns of earlier debates, and place the field directly at the centre of current issues in the social sciences. This second edition includes an entirely new chapter on gifts and exchange that critically approaches the new literature in this area, as well as a thoroughly updated bibliography and guide for students. This short text is designed to be used with monographs or collections as a core reading for economic anthropology courses. It will complement other texts in general socio-cultural anthropology courses and in graduate core courses and it will be a useful supplement in teaching ecological and applied anthropology.
