Summary, etc.: "Using examples from their own research in Indonesia and Mexico, John Monaghan and Peter Just give the reader a sense of what it is like to be an anthropologist doing the unique fieldwork that sets anthropology apart from other social sciences. They also provide an account of the 'big' questions that have concerned anthropologists since the beginnings of the field: What is unique about human beings? How are groups of people - family, class, tribe, nation - formed, and what holds them together? What is the nature of belief, economic exchange, the self?"--Jacket.
