Review: Visions of Culture: An Introduction to Anthropological Theories and TheoristsUser Review - Michele - Goodreads
Cultural theory is not one of my favorite topics even though I am an anthropology major. Still, this book is easy to read, and considering some of the theories, pretty easy to understand. It also includes a little biography of each person which helps to gain insight into what they observed. Read full review
