Summary

An ideal complement to standard anthropology texts or as a stand-alone text/reader, the best-selling Conformity and Conflict continues to offer students an in-depth look at anthropology as a powerful way to study human behavior and events. The articles cover a broad range of theoretical perspectives and demonstrate basic anthropological concepts. The eleventh edition retains the accessibility of the previous editions and the view that anthropology provides fascinating perspective on the human experience.
