Distinguished from its field of competitors by its human ecology approach and written by the editor of the journal Human Ecology, CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY presents an exceptionally current view of a world in which cultural boundaries are being redefined, local societies are being globalized, and indigenous peoples are struggling for survival. The extensive use of ethnographic case studies integrated into the book illustrates the holistic nature of culture and highlights the importance of human decision-making in cultural adaptation and change.
