Publisher:  Addison-Wesley
Summary: One reviewer writes, "Cultural Anthropology excels in making anthropology accessible and relevant to today's students. The authors succeed in showing not only what the current status of anthropology is but also the potential of anthropology to explain human culture in all of its diversity and magnificence."Highlights of the Seventh EditionUsing a cultural materialist approach, this classic text provides students with... a framework for explaining how the parts of sociocultural systems are interrelated and how they change over time.Described as accessible, engaging, well-illustrated, and comprehensive, this text covers a wide range of Western and non-Western cultures for analysis and comparison.Readings from the best-selling Spradley/McCurdy, Conformity and Conflict: Readings in Cultural Anthropology, 12/e have been integrated with this edition of Cultural Anthropology. Orna Johnson uses the lens of cultural materialism as her guide while providing an analysis that demonstrates how the Spradley readings relate to each chapter, providing insider and outsider interpretations of the articles. This new "Through the Lens of Cultural Materialism" feature makes a distinction between emic (insiders') and etic (outsiders') perspectives-an integral part of Marvin Harris' paradigm of cultural materialism.The seventh edition reflects an increased emphasis on the universal pattern model through graphics and new content throughout each chapter. The universal pattern model is introduced in Chapter 2 and applied throughout the text to reinforce how differences in civilization affect infrastructure and adaptive patterns.

  • by Luis

    the most useful things in the book where the pictures and also the word index in the front [back] lol i really learned a lot of words and phrases and its a great starter book, when beginning to learn the language, although i didnt get why the chapters didnt have the alphabets in order, what i mean is that some letters that are in the middle of the arabic alphabet were the ones you had to learn first. but no biggy you will definitely learn something no matter what order the book has its great.

    something that might make this book a lot better is MORE WORDS! once you learn how to write the letters separately then getting to connect them you just want to learn more and more words and phrases. it might be difficult at first, i know, but it begins to get really easy, especially if you really want to learn the language.

    This anthropology book gave a lot of good stories that illustrated the themes of the topics quite well.

    This book could be made better with the addition of an environmental standpoint in relation to anthropology.
