Cultural anthropology has a twofold mission: to understand other cultures and to communicate that understanding. Thirty two years ago, in preparing the first edition of this book, Jim Spradley and David W McCurdy sought to make communication easier and enjoyable for teachers and students alike. This eleventh edition retains the features of the earlier ones: the focus on stability and change, the coverage of a broad range of societies, the combination of professionalism and readability in selections, the view that anthropology provides a prospective on experience, and carefully integrated organization.
