Overview

Show students how anthropology can help them understand today’s world
REVEL™ for Cultural Anthropology in a Globalizing World presents a brief, balanced introduction to the world’s cultures, focusing on how they interact and change. Author Barbara Miller encourages students to think critically about other cultures as well as their own, and offers frequent opportunities to engage deeply with key concepts. Featuring the latest research and statistics throughout, REVEL for the Fourth Edition has been updated with contemporary examples of anthropology in action, addressing recent newsworthy events such as the Ebola epidemic.
