prepare and submit a paper on social anthropological reflections on british society.

Your assignment is to prepare and submit a paper on social anthropological reflections on british society. Hendry (1999, p. 3) also pointed out that most social anthropologies gain special knowledge by simply living in the society of their choice. However, the social anthropologists who specialize in a particular society live not in that society, not in terms of only days or weeks but terms of years (Hendry 1999. p. 3). Social anthropologists typically even establish a home in their society of specialization because “the idea is to find out exactly what it is like to be a member of the society in question, and they operate on the assumption that the best way to do this is to live with them and share their lives” (Hendry 1999, p. 3). Given a society on which he or she specializes on, a social anthropologist “participates in the routines of everyday life, perhaps trying out the activities of several different members of the society, practicing their customs, taking part in their rites, and observing as far as possible their most intimate ceremonies” (Hendry 1999, p. 3). Hendry even dangerous elaborates, “If the people take hallucinogenic drugs, so might the anthropologist” (1999, p. 3). If the people he or she studies get up early, the social anthropologist must also get up early (Hendry 1999, p. 3).
