The objective of this book remains to introduce cultural anthropology to readers with limited background in the subject. Material is presented in a unified framework rather than as an encyclopedia of anthropological concepts and findings or a series of subtopics. Cultural Anthropology, Third Edition is based on the central theme that individuals are active decision-makers, continually involved in creating and using their culture. Faced with new problems and new situations in their environment, people will often attempt to find solutions that go beyond traditional customs and cultural prescriptions. It also stresses the importance of placing humans in a wider evolutionary context. For anyone interested in learning about Cultural Anthropology.
