THE ESSENCE OF ANTHROPOLOGY presents anthropology from an integrated, holistic perspective using three unifying themes as a framework: culture as a systemic adaptation to various internal and external factors, including the environment, biocultural connections between human culture and biology that shape the varied ways humans meet the challenges of survival, and the disparate impact of globalization on peoples and cultures around the world.
