GREEK WHISKYThe Localization of a Global Commodity
“…a well-written and insightful ethnography of modern Greek culture—a good endeavor of ethnographic writing directed not only to students and academics but also to a more general public… I also like the way that the tradition of Greek ethnography blends with new methodological tools and current concerns.” · Elia Petridou, University of the Aegean

INTRODUCTORY READINGS IN ANTHROPOLOGYEdited by Hilary Callan, Brian Street and Simon Underdown
Anthropology seeks to understand the roots of our common humanity, the diversity of cultures and world-views, and the organisation of social relations and practices. As a method of inquiry it embraces an enormous range of topics, and as a discipline it covers a multitude of fields and themes, as shown in this selection of original writings. As an accessible entry point, for upper-level students and first year undergraduates new to the study of anthropology, this reader also offers guidance for teachers in exploring the subject’s riches with their students.
