About the Book :

The book “Neo Anthropological Theory” presents the contributions of those great anthropological thinkers who have propounded their theories after Second World War particularly from 1950 onwards. About the contributions of great classical anthropological thinkers, we have sufficient books. But about the contributions of great neo anthropological thinkers, we have few books having expressions in foreign English language. They lack Indian expressions. As a result Indian students and scholars of anthropology are facing a great problem because they do not find reading materials on neo anthropological theory sufficiently and systematically under one cover. The sole purpose of the book is to purely contextual written with a view to provide contributions of neo anthropological thinkers under one cover systematically in simple English language with Indian expression. The book consists of contributions of neo anthropological thinkers in the following areas:
• Neo evolutionism
• Cultural ecology and Neo cultural ecology.
• Cultural materialism
• Neo Psychological anthropology.
• Structuralism
• Biologised anthropology
• Cognitive anthropology
• Symbolic anthropology
• Interpretive anthropology
• Critical anthropology
• Modernism
• Post-modernism
• Industrialism and post-industrialism
• Globalisation
• Legacy of two Great thinkers in anthropology
• Karl Marx
