Taking the unique problem-based approach, the third Canadian edition of Sociocultural Anthropology encourages students to have a critical mindset when exploring the key concepts and methods presented in this textbook. Each chapter is organized around an intellectual "problem" and then further divided into a series of questions that address the problem from an anthropological perspective. Using problems and questions to frame each chapter along with the engaging writing style of the authors, this approach highlights the real-world, relevant problems that anthropologists are facing and encourages students to start thinking about how they would solve them as anthropologists.
