9780495507369: Classic Readings in Cultural Anthropology

Practical and insightful, CLASSIC READINGS IN CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY, Second Edition is a concise and accessible reader that presents a core selection of historical and contemporary works that have been instrumental in shaping anthropological thought and research over the past decades. Carefully edited by Dr. Gary Ferraro, the Second Edition includes five new classic readings from the disciplines of cultural anthropology and linguistics. Readings are organized around eight topics that closely mirror most introductory textbooks and are selected from scholarly works on the basis of their enduring themes and contributions to the discipline. These selections allow students to further explore anthropological perspectives on such key topics as culture, language and communication, ecology and economics, marriage and family, gender, politics and social control, supernatural beliefs, and issues of culture change. The new edition also addresses pressing topics such as globalization, ethnic violence, environmental issues, and more. CLASSIC READINGS IN CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY, Second Edition delivers an excellent introduction to the field of anthropology and the contributions it makes to understanding the world around us.
