"Moberg does a masterful job of weaving together historical context, anthropological theory, and present-day issues and sensibilities. Rather than standing at a critical distance and taking potshots at our disciplinary ancestors, Moberg shows students clearly how anthropology's ideas and theoretical stances have arisen out of, and made sense within, their historical and geographical contexts. His style is engaging, readable, and oftentimes laugh-out-loud funny. How oftentimes can one say that about a theory textbook?" - Julie Adkins, University of Texas at Arlington, USA
