Offering an introduction to cultural anthropology, this text focuses on preserving cultural diversity in the face of globalization. This sixth edition reflects world changes through a revision of both organization and content. Special features include two new chapters covering the demise of the Soviet Union and its attendant ethnic conflicts; the growing significance of multi-culturalism in the US and Canada; cultural survival worldwide; and anthropology's increasingly transnational, multi-local and longitudinal perspectives. In this edition, gender issues receive expanded attention, and cultural ecology, political economy and social change are emphasized, unifying anthropology's sub-disciplines. Profiles and issues boxes examine current events or debates, offer personal accounts of field experience, or illustrate a point by bringing in an example familiar to students from their everyday experience. An instructor's manual (ISBN: 0-07-035908-3), diskette MAC (ISBN: 0-07-833991-X), diskette 5.25 (ISBN: 0-07-833993-6) and diskette 3.5 (ISBN: 0-07-940271-9) are also available, as well as a case studies book by Dr Holly Peters-Golden.
