Over the past 150 years, the subject matter and different theoretical perspectives have expanded so greatly that no single individual can command all of it. Consequently, both advanced students and professionals may be confronted with theoretical positions and names of theorists with whom they are only partially familiar, if they have heard of them at all.

Theory in social and Cultural Anthropology is a miuch-needed source providing quick overviews of key theories and theorists within the field.
