Early anthropology in Africa includes work by missionaries and colonial officials. During the high colonial period, anthropology in Africa was based at Western-style universities and research centres, notably.

“Using Anthropology in the World plugs a gap that increasingly demands filling – there are many opportunities to apply anthropology in the world and an urgent need to do so.
