From Classic to Contemporary
Students are introduced to the concept of culture and both theory and method in anthropological studies. They become familiar with linguistic anthropology and cross-cultural communication. They learn about applied anthropology as it relates to studies of family, kinship, and marriage, ecology and the environment, beliefs and practices, and issues of globalization. The book includes questions for comprehension and discussion.
From Classic to Contemporary has been designed to serve equally well as a stand-alone text or a supplemental reader. With selections that are high-interest, yet appropriate for those new to the study of the discipline, it is ideal introductory courses.
