I purchased this textbook for an Anthropology class in my college. This textbook was in excellent condition; that was an unexpected surprise. I paid an excellent price and received excellent merchandise. The book is very informative and it is very reader friendly even for a beginner in the field of Anthropology. I highly recommend getting it.
