9781305645790: Cengage Advantage Books: Cultural Anthropology: A Problem-Based Approach

Provide a dialogue in your classroom with CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY: A PROBLEM-BASED APPROACH, 7th Edition. Using a hands-on, participatory, active-learning approach that encourages critical thinking and discussion, this leading text introduces key research problems studied by anthropologists. Within the book's engaging narrative, authors Richard Robbins and Rachel Dowty teach students to analyze their own culture as a basis for understanding the cultures of others. The approach is intended to appeal to the learning styles of a diverse student population. Presentations are organized around research problems rather than topics, creating a natural, integrated discussion of traditional concerns, such as kinship, caste, gender roles, and religion. Students explore these subjects within the context of meaningful questions. The text's brief length and manageable cost provide the flexibility to add original research or ethnographies to enrich students' exposure to anthropology.

Professor Robbins is the recipient of the 2005 American Anthropological Association/McGraw-Hill award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching.

Rachel A. Dowty is visiting assistant professor in emergency management at the University of New Haven, Connecticut. Her research interests revolve around the social and anthropological study of crises and disasters, organizations, and science and technology. She co-authored CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY, 2nd Edition (with Richard H. Robbins). Dowty also co-edited a volume entitled DYNAMICS OF DISASTER: LESSONS ON RISK, RESPONSE AND RECOVERY (2011, with Barbara Allen) and authored numerous book chapters and articles. She has taught a diverse array of university courses for the past 17 years that focus on understanding culture through hands-on civic engagement and reflection. In her spare time she enjoys hiking, edible landscaping, and spending time with her family.
