Anthropology and linguistics, as historically developing disciplines, have had partly separate roots and traditions. In particular settings and in general, the two disciplines have partly shared, partly differed in the nature of their materials, their favorite types of problem the personalities of their dominant figures, their relations with other disciplines and intellectual current. The two disciplines have also varied in their interrelation with each other and the society about them. Institutional arrangements have reflected the varying degrees of kinship, kithship, and separation. Such relationships themselves form a topic that is central to a history of linguistic anthropology yet marginal to a self-contained history of linguistics or anthropology as either would be conceived by most authors. There exists not only a subject matter for a history of linguistic anthropology, but also a definite need.

According to George Marcus of Rice University, the essays "represent the most informative and insightful writings on Malinowski and Boas and their legacies that are yet available." Beyond their biographical material, the essays here touch upon major themes in the history of anthropology: its powerfully mythic aspect and persistent strain of romantic primitivism; the contradictions of its relationship to the larger sociopolitical sphere; its problematic integration of a variety of natural scientific and humanistic inquiries; and the tension between its scientific aspirations and its subjectively acquired data. To provide an overview against which to read the other essays, Stocking has also included a sketch of the history of anthropology from the ancient Greeks to the present. For this collection, Stocking has written prefatory commentaries for each of the essays, as well as two more extended contextualizing pieces.

The text brings together the key areas of linguistic anthropology, addressing issues of power, race, gender, and class throughout. Further stressing the everyday relevance of the text material, Ottenheimer includes In the Field vignettes that draw you in to the chapter material via stories culled from her own and others’ experiences, as well as Doing Linguistic Anthropology and Cross- Language Miscommunication features that describe real-life applications of text concepts.

This second edition of Language, Culture, and Society has profited from the comments of several instructors who have been using the text successfully during the past several years. In his revisions, Zdenek Salzmann has not only updated the text but has made it even more user-friendly. Two of the original chapters have been subdivided, the text has been enriched by the inclusion of additional examples, and the discussions of some of the more abstract topics have been edited with the student and the layperson in mind. With the growing emphasis in anthropology on applications of anthropological findings, references to the uses of linguistic anthropology are included throughout the book, and the final chapter is devoted solely to applications. Because anthropology stresses the holistic view, the tendency to integrate the data from all subfields of anthropology is evident throughout the book.

The contributions to this volume reflect the state of the art in the renewed discussion on the origin of language. Some of the most important specialists in the field - life scientists and linguists - primarily examine two aspects of the question: the origin of the language faculty and the evolution of the first language. At stake is the relation between nature and culture and between universality and historical particularity as well as cognition, communication, and the very essence of language.
