'Leading members of the younger generation of anthropologists engage with confidence and passion topics ranging from ideologies of economics, liberalism and military violence to gender, body, self and mind. Readers will find much to learn from and much to debate within these smart, substantial essays that illustrate the ethical and intellectual excitement, range and complexity of contemporary inquiry.' Michael Lambek, Department of Anthropology, University of Toronto
"Moore sees anthropology as a debate as well as a set of practices ... The papers in Anthropological Theory Today are appealing [and] stimulating ... I recommend the book highly to practicing anthropologists and graduate students." Anthropos
'[Individual chapters] ... offer not only fresh ethnography, recent theorizing and good, occasionally sparkling analytical points; but they also reveal the new identity of a discipline that has successfully passed through the tunnel of postmodernism and emerged on the other side.' Ethnos
'There is much to consider in Moore's substantial Introduction as she presents her view of fundamental questions regarding anthropology and theory and as she introduces the nine papers at some depth.' Journal of Anthropological Research
" All the chapters in the book are interesting, One strength of this collection lies in the fact that every chapter indicates what its author/s regard/s as cutting-edge research, as well as noting any gaps in their respective sub-fields. This could be helpful new researchers such as postgraduate students. Another of its strengths lies in the bibliographies provided by the various contributing authors. These appear to be quite comprehensive so that if a particular chapter or sub-field appeals there is a wealth of reading to undertake." Journal of Intercultural Studies
