Cultural Anthropology: The Human Challenge
Cengage Learning, 9 apr. 2007 - 456 pagina's
Haviland et al's streamlined market leading text presents cultural anthropology in vivid, accessible terms that shows students how the field is relevant to understanding the complex world around them. The authors present the fundamental concepts from a holistic perspective using three unifying themes to frame the text: 1) the varied ways humans face the challenges of existence, 2) the connections between culture and biology in shaping human beliefs and behavior, and 3) the impact of globalization on peoples and cultures around the world. They also integrate coverage of race, class, gender, and ethnicity throughout the text, and in this edition, a new chapter Ethnographic Research: Its History, Methods, and Theories, covers theory and methods more explicitly to help instructors meet general education requirements. The text's superlative writing, strong pedagogical program, rich visuals, and robust collection of supplements provide exceptional teaching and learning experiences for instructors and students alike.
