    In The Interpretation of Cultures, the most original anthropologist of his generation moved far beyond the traditional confines of his discipline to develop an important new concept of culture. This groundbreaking book, winner of the 1974 Sorokin Award of the American Sociological Association, helped define for an entire generation of anthropologists what their field is ultimately about.

Tough Read

by CreatingLeaders on May 22, 2014

Honestly, had I not had to read this for school I would have put it down 10 minutes after starting it. I appreciate seminal works and theorists but Geertz is a very challenging read and the material is dense. I was disappointed in how hard it was to glean the essence of his ideas from the long winded nature of his writing.
