From the Back Cover:

An ideal complement to standard anthropology texts or as a stand-alone reader, Conformity and Conflict continues to offer an in-depth look at anthropology as a powerful way to study human behavior and events.The articles cover a broad range of theoretical perspectives and demonstrate basic anthropological concepts. The tenth edition retains the accessibility of the previous editions: a combination of professionalism and readability in selections; the view that anthropology provides perspective on experience; and a carefully integrated organization. Presents balanced coverage of non-Western and Western cultures (including American) so readers can make their own cultural comparisons and see the relevance of anthropology to their lives. Contains articles that reflect interesting topics while illustrating key concepts and theories. Organizes selections based on traditional topics such as Language and Communication, Economic Systems, Kinship and Family, and Religion. Includes key terms and discussion of many basic anthropological definitions in the part introductions. Provides review questions at the end of each article. Retains the maps, providing readers with a way to locate the societies discussed in the book. For anyone interested in cultural anthropology.
