The book entitled, “Anthropological Research Methodology: Theory and Practice” is an attempt to present different aspects of anthropological researches within one cover to extend help to students, scholars and researchers in understanding the whole issue of research methodology taught and employed in anthropology. Anthropological Research Methodology has its own feature. That is why its methodology is quite different from the methodology of other social sciences. The ethnographic method or fieldwork method is soul of Anthropology. This method helps a researcher to establish a balance between subjectivity and objectivity. There are a number of books written in English by different scholars on different aspects of Anthropological researches. But they are not found in one cover and they lack Indian expression. The book presents systematically chapters on Historical Background of Anthropological Researches, Anthropological Approaches, Types of Researches, Research Designs, Hypothesis, Theory, Law and Concept, Techniques of Data Collection, Scrutiny and Data Processing, Presentation of Data, Statistics, Statistical Analyses of Mean, Median, Mode, Standard Deviation, Partition Value, Correlation, Chi-square, Fitness of good, Report writing, Thesis/dissertation writing, Scientific paper writing and Bibliography writing. The simple language of the book will definitely serve the purpose of students, scholars, researchers interested not only in Anthropological Researches, but Researches in other Social Sciences.
