Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Successfully integrating attention to culture change, gender, class, race, ethnicity, and the environment, Barbara Miller's Cultural Anthropology engages students with compelling ethnographic examples, and demonstrates the relevance of anthropology in today's world.  Faculty and students praise the book’s proven ability to generate class discussion, increase faculty-student engagement, and enhance student learning!

 

Through clear writing, a balanced theoretical approach, and engaging examples, Barbara Miller stresses the importance of social inequality and human rights, the environment, culture change and applied aspects of anthropology.  Rich examples of gender, ethnicity, race, class, and age thread through the topical coverage of economic systems, the life-cycle, health, kinship, social organization, politics, language, religion, and expressive culture.  In addition, the last two chapters address how migration is changing world cultures, and how the importance of local cultural values and needs are shaping international development policies and programs.
