Description:

Cultural Anthropology: A Perspective on the Human Condition is an introductory cultural anthropology text that encourages students to think critically about culture and to view the world in new ways. The authors incorporate cutting-edge theory into solid coverage of traditional topics and pay special attention to issues of power and inequality in the contemporary world, including gender inequalities, racism, ethnic discrimination, nationalism, caste, and class.Covering the material in fourteen chapters, Cultural Anthropology fits well into a semester-long introductory course structure. "In Their Own Words" commentaries expose students to alternative perspectives from non-anthropologists and indigenous peoples, and "EthnoProfile" boxes provide maps and ethnographic summaries of each society discussed at length in the text. The book also features many pedagogical aids, including a glossary, chapter summaries and key terms at chapter ends, and annotated suggestions for further reading.New to this Edition* An entirely new chapter dedicated to medical anthropology--Chapter 13: How is Anthropology Applied in the Field of Medicine?* Numerous updates to Chapter 4: How Has Anthropological Thinking about Cultural Diversity Changed Over Time?* Four new "In Their Own Words" boxes* A glossary of key terms to aid in studying and reviewing* All chapter titles and major headings are now in question form
