This approachable introduction to cultural anthropology invites students to explore anthropology’s relevance to their own lives, through stories, examples, and new, unique chapter-opening vignettes. The brief format and rich visual program allow professors to assign outside reading without sacrificing visual appeal in a concise text. A relaxed writing style complements a text that is well organized and academically solid. In addition, unique pedagogy asks students to think critically and apply concepts, perspectives, and methods.
