    Every year, leading European social anthropologists meet to debate a motion at the heart of current theoretical developments in their subject. Key Debates in Anthropology presents the first six of these debates, from 1988 to 1993. The debates address the disciplinary character of social anthropology; the concept of society; the concept of culture; the place of language in the formation of culture; how we view the past in relation to the present; and the cross-cultural applicability of aesthetics. Participants include: Anthony Cohen, Roy Ellen, Keith Hart, Roland Littlewood, David Lowenthal, Judith Okely, Joanna Overing, J. D. Y. Peel, Marilyn Strathern. With its unique debate format, Key Debates in Anthropology addresses issues that are currently at the top of the theoretical agenda--issues which register the pulse of contemporary thinking in social anthropology.</P>
