The new tenth edition of Kottak's best selling text for cultural anthropology continues to offer a holistic introduction to cultural anthropology that approaches the course from a four-field perspective. The new, tenth edition is a major revision offering many new and exciting features that build on the strengths of this approach. The text has two new themes - Bringing It All Together and Understanding Ourselves. The Bringing it All Together theme, emphasizing anthropology's integrated, comparative and four-field nature, can be found in new Bringing it All Together essays that show how anthropology's subfields and dimensions combine to interpret and explain a common topic.
