Synopsis: Written by the author of "The Guru of Cultural Materialism", this revised text unites seemingly unrelated topics. Harris uses everyday applications of anthropological theories and issues in a user-friendly way. Two new chapters - one on race, ethnicity, and racism; and the other on human sexuality - discuss new research and developments in these areas. This text also demonstrates the relevance of cultural anthropology to contemporary social problems. Updated and expanded chapter previews and new cartoons, jokes and illustrations are featured. Two new full-colour photo essays assist students' visual understanding of cultural diversity.
From the Back Cover: Written by one of the most famous modern anthropologists, the fifth edition of Cultural Anthropology continues to focus on the book's two major objectives. First, it presents a holistic view of sociocultural systems, and secondly, the book provides a unified theoretical framework for explaining these systems. It also remains faithful to the belief that anthropologists must routinely deal with facts and theories that are crucial to informed decisions regarding issues of enduring relevance. The cultural approach used throughout furnishes a framework for explaining how the parts of sociocultural systems are interrelated and how they change over time.
The book also continues in its effort to identify the many causal strands that help explain the process of sociocultural change. It tries to make sense of the many seemingly irrational or arbitrary customs and institutions in small, technologically simple societies as well as complex nations.
For anyone interested in the study of culture.
