The first edition of the widely-popularAnthropology Unboundprepared readers to see how the dynamics of Western economies were rapidly becoming unsustainable. This updated edition takes readers into the heart of the recent economic meltdown, explaining the many recent world events that it has predicted. Within a unique, anthropological perspective,Anthropology Unboundoffers a wider view of the present financial crisis--as well as pathways out of it. It describes the latest studies of fundamentalism, Al-Qaeda, and American culture, and its lively form invites readers to try an anthropological way of understanding our own society and the world at large.

E. Paul Durrenberger was Professor of Anthropology for twenty-five years at the University of Iowa before moving to Penn State. He has published many influential articles and books.
