A unique alternative to more traditional, encyclopedic introductory texts, Anthropology: What Does It Mean to Be Human?, Second Edition, takes a question-oriented approach that incorporates cutting-edge theory and new ways of looking at important contemporary issues such as power, human rights, and inequality. With a total of fifteen chapters, this engaging, full-color text is an ideal one-semester overview that delves deep into anthropology without overwhelming students.

* "Anthropology in Everyday Life" boxes now appear throughout the book to continually show students the applicability of anthropology

* New "In Their Own Words" commentaries throughout

* New module on the components of language

Review:

"I truly love this book. It treats all of the essential elements of an overview course in a sophisticated style with an abundance of maps and photographs."

--Rosalyn Howard, University of Central Florida

"More than any I have used, this text parallels the way in which I structure my introductory course. It is easy to read, has excellent chapter summaries, and the color photographs and drawings are much more engaging than those in other texts that I've used."

--Charles Riggs, Fort Lewis College

"This is the only anthropology text I have encountered that provides just about the right amount of fact, theory, and examples."

--Mary Theresa Bonhage-Freund, Alma College
