9780759111387: Anthropology and Contemporary Human Problems

Resource depletion, global warming, escalating energy costs, poverty, conflict. As human life becomes increasingly complicated, cultural anthropologist John H. Bodley conceives a work that closes in on the social and environmental problems of our time and explores the deleterious global reaches of unsustainable growth in production and consumption.
Anthropology and Contemporary Human Problems addresses the contemporary reader interested in social science and history, environmental studies, globalization, and the political economy and reveals the development of humanity and our global prospectus for the future.

About the Author:

John H. Bodley is a cultural anthropologist and Regents Professor at Washington State University and author of Victims of Progress and Cultural Anthropology: Tribes, States, and the Global System.

Review:

This fifth edition of Bodley's book, Anthropology and Contemporary Human Problems, is a refreshing assessment of many of the contemporary problems that continue to challenge human beings in all sectors of the globe. It is a real tour-de-force and a major advancement over the earlier fourth edition. I'm particularly impressed by the manner in which Bodley places anthropology at the forefront in the search for solutions to the many problems facing humanity, including affluence and poverty, the environmental crisis, natural resource depletion versus sustainability, malnutrition, the evolution of food systems, problems of the factory food system, population problems, conflict, and the future. (Deward Walker, University of Colorado, Boulder)
