A comprehensive text that integrates a unique applied approach to the basic principles of studying different cultures. The applied approach shows students the different ways in which anthropological theories are used not only by practicing anthropologists, but by others outside the field. Applied Perspectives sections demonstrate how cultural anthropology has been used to solve societal problems. Cross Cultural Miscues are interesting scenarios that illustrate the potential negative results of not understanding cultural differences.
