Overall good one...

The book is very useful for beginners as well as advanced learners of anthropology..
In the new edition they also included recent developements on related fields (seperate boxes), pictures , Migrants & Immigrants etc.,
Very useful for civils aspirants( anthropology as optional) to acquire knowledge but not directly in exam(UPSC) point of view..Go for this book if u have enough time( 1year ) for ur mains... :)
