Seeing Anthropology: Cultural Anthropology through Film Karl G. Heider, University of South Carolina, with contributions by Pamela A. R. Blakely, Reading Area Community College and University of Pennsylvania, and Thomas D. Blakely, Pennsylvania State University Seeing Anthropology continues to be the only cultural anthropology text available that allows for easy integration of ethnographic films into the introductory cultural anthropology course. Visual anthropologists and contributors, Pamela Blakely and Thomas Blakely, professors who have taught classes with each edition of this textbook and its films, bring their expertise in ethnographic methods, African studies, comparative religion, and womens studies to this new edition. What Reviewers Are Saying Ethnographic film is integral to teaching cultural anthropology and engaging students in a multidimensional, sensory experience of culture. Through ethnographic films, students gain a better understanding of the work that anthropologists do by seeing it in fieldwork settingsStudents get to see people living and working in their cultures and hear languages from across the globe. This is an important dimension of becoming aware of and appreciating cross-cultural differences. Brooke Olson, Ithaca College Seeing Anthropology is a comprehensive and clearly written textbook for introductory sociocultural anthropology classes. I especially appreciated the use of films in the clarification and amplification of concepts. The range and scope of the topics including their relevance to present day concerns are laudable in the face of [an] ever-changing world. Indeed, to have a sociocultural anthropology introductory text that is both informative and challenging at the same time is quite a feat. Martin F. Manalansan IV, University of Illinois Heider is a good communicator and a good writer. He is an interesting person and does a good job of communicating anthropology in an accessible and interesting manner. The book is written in plain language without being simplistic and does a good job of using the jargon of anthropology where necessary without overwhelming the reader. Adam King, University of South CarolinaKarl G. Heider is the author of 'Seeing Anthropology: Cultural Anthropology Through Film, 4th Edition' with ISBN 9780205483556 and ISBN 0205483550.
