Anthropology
and Society

During the mid-twentieth century, two
anthropologists made landmark
contributions to their field. Julian H.
Steward developed cultural ecology, a
method for studying cultural change by
analyzing the interaction of social life,
environment, and technology. Oscar Lewis
created innovative methods for community
and family studies and published
influential oral histories of the poor to
document the human costs of poverty
worldwide.
