How can students and scholars effectively prepare for - and succeed at - a career in the nonacademic world of applied anthropology? This comprehensive guide, full of practical detail, presents the answers. Nolan relates how to acquire and use the skills essential for work as a practitioner. A key feature of his book is its lifetime focus: he systematically moves from preparation, to job search and negotiation, to research methods and ethics, to building a career, to maintaining relations with the academy. The result is an important reference for current practitioners - and a must-have handbook for prospective anthropologists.
