Anthropology off the Shelf

De
232 pages
In Anthropology off the Shelf, leading anthropologists reflect on the craft of writing and the passions that fuel their desire to write books.
  • First of its kind volume in anthropology in which prominent anthropologists and 3 respected professionals outside the discipline follow the tradition of the “writers on writing” genre to reflect on all aspects of the writing process
  • Contributors are high-profile in anthropology and many have a strong presence outside the field, in popular culture
  • Unique in its format: short essays, revealing and straightforward in content and writing style
