Anthropology Unbound: A Field Guide to the 21st Century, Third Edition, demonstrates how viewing the world through an anthropological lens enhances our understanding of current topics like globalization, the new economy, jobs and careers, world trade, the condition of inner cities, and racialand ethnic relations. It makes anthropology accessible and even fun, with examples from "driving the porcelain bus" as an illustration of negative utility to reading the tags on a classmate's shirt as a way to discuss why it was made in another country.Brief, accessible, and affordable, this updated edition offers a new user-friendly layout that includes fresh photos and multiple sidebars introducing new voices from anthropologists in the corporate world, the military, and more. It concludes with multifaceted opportunities for students to putanthropology to work both inside and outside of academia.

Editorial Reviews

"The text is an incisive and coherent argument for the usefulness of thinking about culture change in terms of comparative systemic relationships engaging economic and ecological processes. The approach is powerful and coherent. I'd recommend it for its incisive focus on social class andmaking ethnography speak to conditions shaped by global processes." --William H. Fisher, College of William and Mary
