Product description

It is generally assumed that anthropologists do their research in remote and uncomfortable parts of the world- places with monsoons, mud huts, and malaria. In this volume, social anthropologist Kate Fox has taken on an altogether more enjoyable assignment, the study of the arcane world of British horseracing.
