The first edition of the widely popular Anthropology Unbound (Paradigm 2007) prepared readers to see how the dynamics of Western economies were rapidly becoming unsustainable. This updated edition takes readers into the heart of the economic meltdown as it explains the many recent world eventsit had predicted. With the unique perspective of anthropology, this book offers a wider view of the present financial crisis - as well as pathways out of it. It describes the latest studies of fundamentalism, Al-Qaeda, and American culture. In lively form it invites any reader into ananthropological way of understanding our own society and the world at large.Power Point slides created by Paradigm author E. Paul Durrenberger on the topics of "Evolution," "Systems," "Emic-Etic," "Kinship," and "Ecology" are available to download electronically on the book's website.
