From the Publisher:

The Eighth Edition represents the most comprehensive revision to date-- reflecting the most recent anthropological research and controversial developments and integrating new features in each chapter aimed at sparking and maintaining student interest.

From the Back Cover:

Key Benefit: Through Eight Editions, these authors have captured the essence of anthropological study and research with their focused discussion of (1) the timeless questions of human culture and social customs, and (2) how and why human populations have arrived at their current state. Key Topics: Ember and Ember analyze and compare the principles of cultural variation through broad geographical coverage and numerous examples. Their pragmatic approach begins by discussing what is special and distinctive about anthropology as a whole, then relating anthropology to other disciplines and to the solution of real-world problems. Along the way, the authors differentiate between theory and fact, stressing to students that all scientific understanding is tentative and subject to revision. The Eighth Edition represents the most up-to-date, pedagogically-advanced edition yet—reflecting the most recent anthropological research and controversial developments and integrating new features in each chapter aimed at sparking and maintaining student interest.
