Ed. by Satish Kedia and John van Willigen.

The focus of this book is on how anthropologists work in a variety of domains to inform policy for alleviating societal problems. After an opening general discussion of theories, methodologies, and ethics the ten chapters presented by Kedia (anthropology, U. of Memphis) and Willigen (anthropology, U. of Kentucky) describe anthropological activities, methodologies, and influences in the areas of development, agriculture, the environment, health and medicine, nutrition, involuntary population resettlement, business and industry, education, and aging populations. The final chapter considers emerging trends.
