This new reader offers a collection of articles focusing on practicing anthropology at a time when students are increasingly looking for ways to apply their anthropology degrees to their professional lives. The reader gives a broad overview of the applied cultural anthropology field through contextualizing case studies that cover important issues (roles, ethics, methods, policy) as well as domains of practice (urban, medical, development, the environment, education, and business).
