Summary

Practical and insightful, CLASSIC READINGS IN CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY, Second Edition is a concise and accessible reader that presents a core selection of historical and contemporary works. Carefully edited by established author Dr. Gary Ferraro, this edition includes five new classic readings from the disciplines of cultural anthropology and linguistics. Readings are organized around eight topics that closely mirror most introductory textbooks and are selected from scholarly works on the basis of their enduring themes and contributions to the discipline. These eminently relevant selections allow students to further explore anthropological perspectives on such key topics as culture; language and communication; ecology and economics; marriage and family; gender; politics and social control; supernatural beliefs; and issues of culture change. The text also addresses pressing topics such as globalization, ethnic violence, and environmental issues. CLASSIC READINGS IN CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY, Second Edition delivers an excellent introduction to the field of anthropology and the contributions it makes to understanding the world around us.
