Overview

An accessible, balanced undergraduate textbook on anthropological theory. Jerry D. Moore's "Visions of Culture" presents students with a brief, readable treatment of theoretical developments in the field from the days of Tylor and Morgan through contemporary postmodernists and cultural materialists. The key ideas of 21 major theorists are briefly described and linked to biographical and fieldwork experiences that helped shape those theories. An assessment of the scholar's impact on contemporary theorizing is presented, along with numerous explanatory examples, illuminating quotes from the theorists' writings, and a description of the broader intellectual setting in which these anthropologists worked. An ideal book for classes on the theory or the history of anthropology.

Author Biography: Jerry D. Moore is a professor of anthropology at California State University, Dominquez Hills.
