Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lassiter's concise introductory text to cultural anthropology offers a fresh and accessible approach for students. His message about the relevance of anthropology is timely and engaging, and he illustrates the varied and valuable applications of the anthropological perspective for real world problems on the local, regional, and global scale. This book is an ideal text for undergraduate students, and can be easily supplemented with case studies in anthropology.

Book News Annotation:

In this concise volume, which is not meant to be a general survey, Lassiter (humanities and anthropology, Marshall U. Graduate College) identifies anthropological issues, hoping to inspire students to undertake further study. Topics cover assumptions and concepts behind anthropological theory, with an emphasis on culture and ethnography, and in the second part, history, change, adaptation, gender, marriage, family, kinship, and religion. This edition contains new examples, concepts, illustrations, and a glossary. The introduction from the previous edition has been replaced by a preface.
