Book review

The concept of "applied anthropology" dates back to at least 1906, when it was used to announce the establishment of a diploma program at Oxford, while the term "practical anthropology" was used as early as the 1860s by James Hunt, founder of the Anthropological Society of London. In this work, there are numerous examples of how each subfield is represented in applied employment. Archaeologists are found working for the National Park Service (with forest, fisheries, and parks) and in cultural resource management. Some forensic anthropologists rely on techniques of physical anthropology to assist in medical / legal cases. Linguistic anthropologists may design bilingual education programs. Medical anthropologists might be interested in how culture affects the way people seek health care. Sociocultural anthropologists could be focused domestically, on corporate work culture and the relationship between productivity and management policy, or internationally; studying the impact non-military foreign aid has on local communities Elizabeth M. Eddy was professor emerita of anthropology at the University of Florida, and author of numerous scholarly articles and books. William L. Partridge is an equally expert anthropologist and author of "The Hippie Ghetto: The Natural History of a Subculture".
