Alfred Cort Haddon (1855 1940) was an influential British anthropologist who played a key role in developing a more structured approach to his field of study. Additionally, he was instrumental in the creation of a School of Anthropology at Cambridge University, and in raising the status of a discipline that, at the time, had dubious associations in academic circles. Originally published in 1942, this volume constitutes a biographical sketch of Haddon, detailing the key events in his life and the actions he took to encourage a scientific approach in anthropology. Although concise, the text is highly informative, with abundant quotations from his writings, a chronological table, and illustrations. This fascinating book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Haddon's life, and the development of anthropology."
