Seeing Anthropology: Cultural Anthropology Through Film, Third Edition
Karl G. Heider, University of South Carolina
Seeing Anthropology continues to be the only cultural anthropology text available that integrates ethnographic films into the introductory cultural anthropology course. This text truly incorporates films within the text by blending textbook content with fourteen ethnographic film clips that are put in the hands of students. One reviewer says, “The greatest strengths of this text are its unique and skillful use of film clips to enhance student learning ... I can think of no better way to extend student learning in anthropology than the use of films, and there is no one more qualified to select and present anthropological films than the author of this book.”
