Integrates globalization and culture change in every chapter.

Cultural Anthropology introduces students to the concepts and methods that anthropologists bring to the study of cross-cultural diversity.

Nancy Bonvillain brings the study of cultural anthropology to life by encouraging students to see what is going on in the world and helping them understand how it affects cultures. She presents the voices of people studied by anthropologists, and highlights the dynamic, adaptive nature of societies and cultures.
