Overview

The leading European anthropologists contributing to this volume share the view that ethnography and theoretically informed comparisons constitute a single, feasible enterprise. They reject both the postmodernist criticism of ethnography as epistemologically problematic

and the opposing view that no theory could possibly do justice to the insights and complex descriptions of ethnography.

In Conceptualising Society, the first of six collections of papers taken from the first conference of the newly-formed European Association of Social Anthropologists, the contributors discuss the various models at the disposal of the modern ethnographer. The contributors cover issues of

structuralism, postmodernism and world systems theory, offering a lively account of the state of general theory in social anthropology today.
