Encourage a critical mindset and active, global citizenship with Robbins/Cummings/Larkin/McGarry's ' unique Cultural Anthropology: A Problem-Based Approach, 2Ce. Using a hands-on, participatory, active-learning approach that promotes inquiry and discussion, this leading brief text introduces key research problems studied by anthropologists.
