Renowned for its integration of rich ethnographies into the core book, CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY, 10th Edition provides excellent coverage of cultures around the world. The text also emphasizes critical thinking and contemporary issues, including culture change and globalization, with a new chapter on "Power, Conquest, and the World System". In addition, a new end-of-chapter feature entitled "The Global and The Local" presents students with case studies on cultural responses to globalization, asking them to critically evaluate the issue. Issues of power, gender, stratification, and ethnicity continue to be highlighted in this edition, supported by features and pedagogy designed to get students thinking about the world in which they live.
