This serves to make Kottal the most balanced introduction to the four fields of anthropology. "Where in the World" maps let students view important geographical data "up close" as well as in the broader context of the geographical area. Helpful marginal icons tell students when more information is available on the CD-ROM, Website or elsewhere in the text. Engaging boxed features, "Interesting Issues", "In the News", and the widely-acclaimed "Beyond the Classroom", capture student interest by focusing on provocative issues, current events and student research. Easy-to-use end-of-chapter reviews now include an all-new numbered chapter summary which students will find valuable as a study tool, as well as glossaries, critical thinking and internet exercises. New organization places the physical anthropology and archaeology chapters at the beginning of the text and follows them with the cultural and linguistic chapters, making the book a better match for the way most instructors teach the course. A new student CD-ROM features a chapter-by-chapter electronic study guide with audio, video, text and web-based review tools, as well as study break materials and information on how to succeed in this course. New chapter-opening vignettes highlight a newsworthy current event related to the chapter, drawing students in and emphasizing the relevance of anthropology in today's world.Read Less

Although I didn't buy this book for pleasure, but for school, I am finding it is very well written, easy to interpret and understand. The online learning center available is very helpful. You won't be disappointed!
