Overview

This text delivers information about the world’s cultures from a progressive viewpoint reflecting a contemporary approach to anthropology, with cutting-edge research explained in clear and engaging prose.  It also promotes critical thinking and reflective learning in students.  Giving more attention to globalization as a force of change worldwide, and making connections between the global and the local, students will find many points at which they can connect with the material and reflect on their own culture.
