The reading list given below of initial reading suggestions is not mandatory: please use your own good sense in using it, whether you are new to anthropology or already have extensive training and relevant experience.

Many of the suggested readings are relevant to several of these fields. Anthropologists at work Bowen, Elenore Smith (1954) Return to Laughter. Basic introductions for those new to anthropology Hendry, Joy (1999) An Introduction to Social Anthropology: other People's Worlds . Recent Overviews.
