Ten cultures! Barbara Gallatin Anderson brings to life a range of cultures from the tribal Hmong to a United States military base. With humor and a precision born of hands-on familiarity with the regions involved, she draws the reader into startlingly real identification with other people’s worlds: France, Denmark, Thailand, India, Morocco, Japan, Corsica, China, Russia, and the United States. Every chapter gives us insight into the ways we identify with basic anthropological themes, the challenges of applied fieldwork, and the impact of change. To a surprising extent the reader becomes the anthropologist—with all the highs and lows that are part of life as a cultural anthropologist.Barbara Gallatin Anderson is the author of 'Around the World in 30 Years: Life as a Cultural Anthropologist', published 1999 under ISBN 9781577660576 and ISBN 1577660579.
