By Franz Boas

Esta obra, a primeira do autor a ser publicada na íntegra, no Brasil, reúne de maneira sistemática os principais temas da Antropologia boasiana. Este livro é uma das mais importantes obras de Franz Boas. Nele o autor busca desconstruir as bases das grandes teorias da Antropologia do século XIX (raça, evolução e cultura) e instaura o relativismo cultural como visão motora dentro dessa Ciência. Boas desmonta definitivamente o conceito de raça e evolução ontogênica como paradigma do pensamento antropológico e estabelece os métodos e os critérios para o trabalho de campo que até hoje ajudam a guiar os antropólogos. Estudiosos e cientistas são unânimes em considerar esta obra como uma das grandes realizações feitas até hoje nos estudos da humanidade.
