Show synopsis Offering compelling photos, engaging examples, and select studies by anthropologists in a variety of locations around the globe, this market-leading text presents cultural anthropology in vivid, accessible terms - showing students how the field is relevant to understanding the complex world around them. Honed, streamlined, and extensively updated throughout, the fourteenth edition continues to present the fundamental concepts from a holistic perspective using three unifying themes: the varied ways humans face the challenges of existence, the connections between culture and biology in shaping human beliefs and behavior, and the impact of globalization on peoples and cultures around the world. This new edition also retains its integrated coverage of race, class, gender, and ethnicity as well as its popular Globalscape feature, which gets students thinking about the consequences of globalization and (sometimes) their own behavior. A strong supplements program provides instructors and students with a wealth of resources designed to enhance the teaching and learning experience.
