The Future of Anthropological Kwledge the chapters explore the question of the nature of social kwledge from a variety of perspectives and locations such as China, Africa, the USA and elsewhere. By examining the changing nature of anthropological kwledge and of the production of that kwledge, this book challenges the tion that only western societies have produced social theories of modernity and of global scope. Kwledge of society can longer be restricted to a kwledge of face-to-face social relations but must encompass the effect of techlogy, global consumption patterns and changing geo-political configurations. The Future of Anthropological Kwledge will be of interest to anthropologists and students of culture and society.
