This careful revision of one of the best-selling Cultural Anthropology texts available now features dramatically revised coverage of kinship, families, and descent in Chapter 15, expanded coverage of ethnographic techniques in Chapter 2, new material on music and dance in Chapter 13, and much more. A wealth of the “Where In The World” Maps lets students view important geographical data “up close” as well as in the broader context of the geographical area. Helpful marginal icons tell students when more information is available on the CD-ROM, Website, or elsewhere in the text. Engaging boxed features, “Interesting Issues”, “In the News”, and the widely-acclaimed “Beyond the Classroom,” capture student interest by focusing on provocative issues, current events, and student research. Easy-to-use end-of-chapter reviews now include an all-new numbered chapter summary which students will find indispensable as a study tool, as well as glossaries, critical thinking and internet exercises, and all-new case studies designed for use with Culture Sketches, 3/e by Peters-Golden, an ethnographic readings book available with Kottak.
