Summary

Renowned for its integration of rich ethnographies into the core book, CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY, 10th Edition provides excellent coverage of cultures around the world. This new edition integrates the most recent research updates, while continuing to emphasize the issues of power, gender, globalization, stratification, and ethnicity. High-interest features such as the new "The Global and the Local" capture a key message of the book: the study of anthropology is important because it builds awareness and helps develop informed citizens of the many similarities and differences among cultures around the world.
