The science of man has weathered many a storm not excepting the far-reaching repercussions of the holocaust of World War II. It has in fact emerged Anteus-like, stronger and revitalized each time. Speedier modes of travel and more efficient media of communication enabling the peoples of the world to come closer to each other have led to a significant revolution in the social sciences.
For the first time since its inception, the ICAES held its Xth session In a Third World Country under the distinguished presidentship of a Third World anthropologist. It is but fitting that the papers presented at the Congress should be published in India, the host country.
The eleven papers that comprise this volume, the fourth in the series, centre around some of the major trends and ideas that have emerged in world anthropology. Very loosely categorized, some concern socio cultural anthropology and the wider society in the context of development programmes. Others examine selected aspects of development within the discipline.
Both in respect of the regions covered as well as the paradigmatic trends it discusses, the book succeeds in airing major problems in anthropology today, the discussion of which will serve to invigorate the study of Man.
