Book Summary

This book contains concepts relating to important issues that have current relevance in applied areas of anthropology. Besides providing a general overview, it also touches upon the major contributions and philosophies of some eminent Indian Anthropologists in the field of applied anthropology. Furthermore, directions for the future studies for applied anthropologists have been brought into focus here. Other issues that have been covered include human growth and development, genetics, forensic anthropology, palaeoanthropology and prehistoric archaeology, researches on children, adolescents, women and the family, AIDS and sexual behavior, as well as cultural dynamics of religion, health and ecology. All these areas have had a major importance in the way anthropologists have modified and/or created new paradigms for understanding these issues. Thus, this book is a very significant contribution to applied anthropological approaches utilized in India and would be of immense use for scholars, researchers, administrators, bureaucrats, teachers from a broad range of disciplines, NGOs as well as for those who wish to increase their knowledge regarding the science of man in the service of humankind.
