Abstract
Inclusive online update jan10. The materials for this Chapter are mainly taken from Marschall (1991), Kohl (2001), Feest & Kohl (2001), Ortner (1984), Gottowik (1997), from my class readers (see Preface, above) and W. Fikentscher (1995/2004), 77 – 92. Apart from interest in, and observation of, current events in the anthropology of law, there was no additional research of my own. References may be found in Chapter 1 I. 6 or in the bibliographical subchapter III. below. In Chapter 2, the presentation of schools, directions, and names in cultural anthropology as well as a report on the crisis of ethnographic representation in the 70ies and 80ies try to follow new paths.
