Description

"Oxford has arguably contributed more to our understanding of tribal societies than any other department of anthropology in the world. Through creating a virtual community, by uniting their work and their lives, by their assurance, generations of Oxford scholars have been able to make the leaps which take us into new and previously unsuspected worlds. They had the privileges, the shared zeal and the shock of similarity-with-difference which engenders true creativity and they made good use of it." (from the Preface by Alan MacFarlane, Cambridge University). Informative as well as entertaining, this volume offers many interesting facets of the first hundred years of anthropology at Oxford University.
