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. The Understanding Ourselves theme, helping to explain the relevance of facts and theories to students, can be found in new Understanding Ourselves paragraphs that answer the question So What? A Brand new and unique atlas and visual guide will be shrink wrapped with every copy of the text for free offering students even more visual material on top of an already outstanding visual arts program in the text.
