Buy anthropology books - where to go
 
Irrespective of being able to track down or purchase particular texts online, one of the great pleasures of retaining academic interests is gravitating to your interests in a bookshop. So here are the beginnings of a page of suggestions as to where to find resonable collections of anthropology-related books. Hopefully, people would be eager to add furtrher suggestions to expand from my rather London-centric experience. Firstly, true, there's not that much fun in the main bibliopolic 'supermarket' chains (well, they're not to my taste), so the 'biggies' will only get a mention if they are exceptional for some reason.
 
Skoob  http://www.skoob.com/ Been in the Brunswick Centre for years, and after the refurbishment, now occupies a suite of cellars below it.  Well-ordered second-hand collections, with about 2000 sociology / anthropology / cultural studies books. I've found some real gems there in the past, though the prices reflect its central London location.
 
Judd Books http://www.juddbooks.com/ Again Bloomsbury area, and deals in mainly publishers' remainders. Good for more obscure academic presses.
 
Waterstones, Gower Street http://www.waterstones.com/waterstonesweb/navigate.do?pPageID=200006 Though run by a chain, this store still operates as the main bookshop for the University of London, and (for our interests) carries the main texts for SOAS and UCL courses.  Anthropology's half a bay up on the third floor, for key texts and more.
 
Copperfields (Wimbledon) http://www.copperfieldbooks.co.uk/ All second-hand. Deserves a mention, not so much for its specifically anthropology stock, but because Joe, the owner, is an anthropology Oxford alumnus, and an affable exuberant character in his own right. The bookshop itself is so crammed and labyrinthine that it amazes.
