9780199945870: Anthropology Unbound: A Field Guide to the 21st Century

The first edition of the widely popular Anthropology Unbound prepared readers to see how the dynamics of Western economies were rapidly becoming unsustainable. This updated edition takes readers into the heart of the economic meltdown as it explains the many recent world events it had predicted. With the unique perspective of anthropology, this book offers a wider view of the present financial crisis-as well as pathways out of it. It describes the latest studies of fundamentalism, Al-Qaeda, and American culture, inviting students into an anthropological way of understanding our own society and the world at large.

Review:

"Anthropology Unbound helped me teach better than I ever have before." -- Barbara Dilly, Creighton University Anthropology Unbound is the most refreshing text I've ever read, a genuine `field guide' to the anthropological way of thinking and perceiving the world around us. The authors make the facts unforgettable, the graphs and charts clear and truly helpful, and the messages both substantial and provocative. -- Bonnie J. McCay, Professor of Anthropology and Human Ecology, Rutgers University "Conversational, explanatory, and provocative, with a clear and strong point of view on the contemporary world. Undergraduate students will thrive on the immediacy of the writing, while professionals will savor the consistent theme of household versus suprahousehold political economy from simple societies to the contemporary world-system." -- Josiah Heyman, Professor of Anthropology, University of Texas-El Paso "The only introductory anthropology text I have ever seen that has the courage not only to address current humanitarian issues of class and state but to tackle the problems head-on with a clear, logical, empirical ethnographic approach." -- Kara Leah Reichart, University of North Carolina
