The Behavioral and Social Sciences Survey: Anthropology.
Smith, Allan H., Ed.; Fischer, John L., Ed.
This book is one of a series prepared in connection with the Survey of Behavioral and Social Sciences (BASS) conducted between 1967 and 1969. The primary goal of the report is to provide a balanced statement of the past accomplishments, present status, and future prospects of anthropology. Although selective, the report attempts a great deal: 1) it suggests the scope of the discipline by illustrating what some anthropologists have done; 2) it indicates the history and major accomplishments of each of the principal subfields; 3) it describes the interrelationships of these subfields and the interlocking interests of anthropology and tangent disciplines; 4) it surveys current and anticipated personnel and facilities needs; 5) it projects in a tentative manner anthropology's probable development over the coming few years; and, 5) it formulates a series of recommendations to improve the discipline and increase its usefulness in applied contexts. In addition to the editors, members of the Anthropology Panel of the BASS include: Stephen Boggs, Elizabeth Colson, Eugene Giles, Dell Humes, Douglas Schwartz, and Sherwood Washburn. (Author/JLB)
