“This book is the complete package. No more and no less is needed to teach cultural anthropology. The book helps my students see the world bigger, but feel like the world is smaller.”
“Well written. The prose and narrative are easy to follow and is great to engage and hold student interest. It’s has relevant references to applications of anthropology to real world events, circumstances and activities.”
“An updated take on the classic intro anthropology text that includes recent national and world developments and conversations”
“This book focuses on social structures and it helps students look at themselves in their culture versus different cultures to better understand the social structures and institutions. The authors really put themselves into the shoes of the student in a beginning cultural anthropology course.”
It's good, but I have another that I prefer that saves students money.
Excellent and thorough coverage of topic. The book is well structured and forms the backbone of my course.
