Book review

Salzmanā€™s clear, well-organized treatment demonstrates how comparative analysis is a valuable tool in observing and understanding people in all social and cultural situations. He points out that there is no single, correct way to do comparative analysis, a central approach to anthropological knowledge, and describes four useful strategies to advance diverse anthropological purposes: (1) find similar patterns in historically distinct cases; (2) examine different, contrasting patterns in different places; (3) look at closely related communities, societies, and cultures, which share many common features and differ only in a few; and (4) examine all cases known of a particular type of society, or a representative sample of all cases. Lucid explanations, the perspectives of prominent scholars, and myriad examples illuminate the richness of comparative analysis in anthropology and show how comparison can discipline thoughts and support sound understanding.
