A leading name in anthropology, Conrad Philip Kottak continues to define student learning in the cultural anthropology course. Cultural Anthropology offers an up-to-date holistic introduction to general anthropology from the four-field perspective. Key themes of appreciating the experiences students bring to the classroom, appreciating human diversity, and appreciating the field of anthropology are showcased throughout the text.
Focusing on an increasingly interconnected world, the new Focus on Globalization essays examine topics as diverse as tourism in the ancient and modern worlds, global disease pandemics, world events (including the Olympics and the World Cup), and the expansion of international finance and branding.
