Format: Paperback
'Introducing Anthropology: A Graphic Guide' briefly covers the development of anthropology as a subject, covers some of the main debates in the field, introduces the reader to some of the main academics and provides short explanations of key terms. It is by no means a comprehensive account and if you are going to purchase this you should know it really is the bare bones (I read it in about an hour and a half).
There are some really good things about this book; the illustrations are excellent and difficult concepts are made fairly accessible. Suggestions for further reading are good, but limited in number.
What really lets it down is the complete and utter lack of any coherent structure; there isn't even a contents pageIt felt like the first third of the book was constantly saying 'this is the birth of modern anthropology' about a plethora of unrelated things, which got quite confusing. I also found the interjections of the 'noble savage' character incredibly irritating.
This isn't an awful book. I feel more informed about anthropology than before, but as I pursue the subject in greater depth I don't doubt I will find better introductory texts to review.

What even is this book?!

I bought this as an undergrad, wanting an introduction to the discipline. It's non-linear structure is SO hard to follow. I thought it was supposed to be an explanatory introduction— however, it's mainly comprised of jargon, keywords and references I did not understand and the weirdest nerdy illustrations.

Be warned when you purchase this book, there are about two lines of text on each page.
