Publisher Comments:

This brief introduction to cultural anthropology is designed in structure, content, format, and style to appeal to instructors who do not wish to use conventional texts, but instead wish to expose students directly to the cultural detail and personal experiences that lie in the anthropological record itself. Using rich case studies in every chapter, this text provides a succinct framework that will help students to recognize the general patterns in specific case material, to distinguish the predictable from the unpredictable, and to extend their anthropological understanding to contemporary issues.

Synopsis:

This short book is designed to expose readers directly to the cultural detail and personal experiences that lie in the anthropological record itself, and to extend their anthropological understanding to contemporary issues.
