Summary

New Features

  • A NEW and comprehensive Kottak Anthropology Atlas now appears as an insert to the text, replacing the separate Atlas that had accompanied the previous edition. The new color Atlas includes 17 maps covering topics important to all four fields in anthropology, accompanied by interpretive questions that test students' skill with map usage. Cross-references to individual maps appear in the margins of most chapters.
  • A NEW Appendix provides a thought-provoking overview of anthropological theories, their evolution, and relevance to contemporary thought. The essay also includes a timeline charting the historical development of key theories.
  • A NEW "Linkages" activity at the end of each chapter provides comments and questions that link the text chapter to information in three other McGraw-Hill books often packaged with this text: Assault on Paradise, Fourth Edition, by Conrad Phillip Kottak; Culture Sketches, Fourth Edition, by Holly Peters-Golden; and The Gebusi, a new case study by Bruce Knauft.
  • A NEW contemporary design features a larger page size that enhances the readability of the text and the clarity of its pedagogical features.
  • NEWLY designed chapter openers improve access to key ideas and themes. Each chapter begins with an outline of key points, a concise overview that helps students organize their reading and focus on critical concepts, and a "News Brief" that conveys the excitement and relevance of anthropological inquiry, illustrated in today's headlines.
  • Two NEW quick guides to theory ("Applications of Anthropology's Major Theories" and "Coverage of Race and Ethnicity, Gender, and Social Class") now appear on the inside covers of the book, providing quick access, through chapter or page references, to discussions of these critical issues within the text.
  • Three NEW "Beyond the Classroom" boxes appear in chapters 5, 12, and 16. These thematic boxes, found in most chapters, report on student-based research; they enable students to read about the work of their peers, further highlighting the relevance of anthropology in the real world and suggesting possible research and academic options.
