Cultural Anthropology introduces students to the concepts and methods that anthropologists bring to the study of cross-cultural diversity, while encouraging students to see what is going on in the world and how it affects cultures. By presenting extended examples from a variety of cultures and incorporating the voices of these peoples, best-selling author Nancy Bonvillain brings the study of cultural anthropology to life, so that students may come to understand the global processes that affect us all.  This is the only book that integrates the important issues of globalization and culture change in every chapter, and the new Canadian edition includes an eclectic mix of Canadian content, cultural anthropology, art and urban anthropology.  With a unique character and a theoretically neutral standpoint, and incorporating numerous examples, Cultural Anthropology presents a dynamic view of living cultures for today’s students.
