For undergraduate one-quarter/semester courses in introductory cultural anthropology.Cultural Anthropology is the only book that integrates the important issues of globalization and culture change in every chapter as it introduces students to the concepts and methods that anthropologists bring to the study of cross-cultural diversity. Nancy Bonvillain, a best-selling author in linguistics, gender and Native American studies, has written an introductory textbook that encourages students to see what is going on in the world and how it affects cultures. By presenting extended examples from a variety of cultures and incorporating the voices of these peoples, she brings the study of cultural anthropology to life, so that students may come to understand the global processes that affect us all.
