Cultural Anthropology takes a holistic approach to the study of cultural anthropology. Authors Carol Ember and Melvin Ember explain not only what humans are and were like, but also how they got to be that way, in all their variety. This comparative exploration of human cultures across space and time provides comparative, cross-cultural insights based on an evidence-based approach.
The 15th Edition offers updated research to ensure an up-to-date learning experience. Updated Perspectives on Diversity boxes shed light on issues pertaining to gender, ethnicity and sexual orientation, both in anthropology and everyday life. And updated Global Issues boxes explore worldwide social problems.
