Designed to complement standard cultural anthropology texts, "Conformity and Conflict" offers students an in-depth look at how anthropology is a powerful way to study human behavior and events. Thirty-six accessible articles - seventeen of which are new or updated - were selected to cover a broad range of theoretical perspectives as well as demonstrate basic concepts. This ninth edition includes pedagogical materials that set the context for the articles and increase their value to introductory students: part openers with key terms and study questions and locator maps for each article. Carefully chosen for their instructional value and topical interest, articles address issues such as the Militia Movement, crack dealers, gangs, and environmental destruction.
