What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“This thrilling survey at once points to a rich future for anthropology, without diminishing the ethical and moral debts contemporary anthropologists owe to their predecessors.”
Jonathan Spencer, University of Edinburgh

“Morality - for long the preserve of philosophers, preachers and educators - increasingly attracts psychologists, cognitive scientists, and even economists. This richly rewarding book displays the distinctive insights and lively debates anthropologists are bringing to an exciting new field.”
Steven Lukes, New York University
