9780072818604: Core Concepts in Cultural Anthropology

Designed to address the needs of anthropology professors who prefer to make extensive use of ethnographies and other supplementary readings in their courses, this is a concise, accurate introduction to the basic ideas and practices of contemporary cultural anthropology. Not a standard textbook, Core Concepts is more like an annotated bibliography of the terms and concepts that anthropologists use in their work. The book will prepare students to read ethnography more effectively and with less confusion and misunderstanding.
