Description:

An ideal complement to standard anthropology texts or a stand-alone text/reader, the best-selling Conformity and Conflict continues to offer students an in-depth look at anthropology as a powerful way to study human behavior and events. The 37 articles cover a broad range of theoretical perspectives and demonstrate basic anthropological concepts. The Twelfth Edition retains the accessibility of the previous editions and the view that anthropology provides a fascinating perspective on the human experience.
