ABOUT THIS BOOK
Praise for After Tylor. . .

"The publication of After Tylor, taken together with Victorian Anthropology, represents a milestone in the historiography of the behavioural sciences."—Robert Ackerman, London Review of Books

"After Tylor is thus an effort to reconstruct and understand modes of thought which—though hardly discontinuous—were still rather different from our own. In this, it is utterly and completely successful."—Robert Alun Jones, American Journal of Sociology

"This is magnificent scholarship. Furthermore it proves that a discourse intended to complicate received ideas can also be eminently readable."—Michael Herzfeld, American Scientist

"Formidable as its scope is, this account is also eminently readable. The layering of each character will ensure that it can be read at all levels of anthropological sophistication."—Marilyn Strathern, Times Higher Education Supplement

"There are many reasons that George Stocking is generally recognized as the leading historian of anthropology. His ability to breathe life into the dead is not the least of them." —Henry Munson, Jr., Religion

"Few scholarly books of this considerable length deserve to be read from cover to cover, but Stocking's After Tylor is surely one of them."—Tamara Kohn, Metascience
