Description

Societal Organization and Globalization in Cultural Anthropology

 

Cultural Anthropology: A Global Perspective provides students with an introduction to cultural anthropology through a traditional holistic and integrative approach. 

 

Organized by societal type, this book's primary emphasis is on applied anthropology, with a strong coverage of globalization.  Additionally, it emphasizes three unifying themes: 1) the diversity of human societies and cultural patterns the world over, 2) the similarities that make all humans fundamentally alike, and 3) the interconnections between the sciences and humanities within anthropology.
