Description

For one semester/quarter introductory courses in General Anthropology (Four Fields).

This book presents the highlights of the popular Anthropology, 12th edition by the same author team. The size of the book (19 chapters) makes it useful for quarter courses, as well as for courses that encourage a lot of supplemental reading.

This text provides students with a comprehensive and scientific introduction to the four fields of anthropology and helps students understand humans in all their variety and why such variety exists. This new edition places an increased emphasis on immigration, migration and globalization.

The four sections of the text introduce students to anthropology, address the biological and cultural evolution of humans, introduce students to cultural variation, and show how anthropology can be applied beyond academia.
