Very useful

I can recommend this book particularly for a beginning graduate level course in applied cultural anthropology. The author uses a case study approach for the most part, drawn largely from his own considerable experience in Canada. He stresses the importance of public policy in anthropological practice. His approach is more methodological than subject oriented. Instead of chapters on medical anthropology, development anthropology, and the anthropology of business, he offers chapters on needs assessment, program evaluation, social impact assessment, focus groups, survey questionnaires, rapid assessment procedures, and participatory research. I believe this is exactly what the budding applied anthropologist needs to know. The book provides an effective foundation for the development of an applied `tool-kit' that is necessary for practice.
