A Handbook of Practicing Anthropology

A Handbook of Practicing Anthropology presents a comprehensive account of contemporary, collaborative anthropological practice written primarily by non-academic anthropologist practitioners. The diverse range of topics includes professional training and preparation, job hunting, professional development, career planning, ethics, teamwork, and other important aspects of anthropological practice beyond the confines of academia. Key practice sectors such as freelancing, managing a consulting firm, and working for government, nonprofits, and corporations are also examined. Additional chapters address work in the domains of health, industry, education, international development, and the military. A Handbook of Practicing Anthropology is an essential resource for anyone contemplating a career path outside the academy and wishing to apply anthropological principles to their work in a wide range of professional settings.
