One reviewer writes, “Cultural Anthropology excels in making anthropology
accessible and relevant to today's students. The authors succeed in showing not
only what the current status of anthropology is but also the potential of
anthropology to explain human culture in all of its diversity and magnificence.”
Highlights of the Seventh Edition
Using a cultural materialist approach, this classic text provides students with a framework for explaining how the parts of sociocultural systems are interrelated and how they change over time.
Described as accessible, engaging, well-illustrated, and comprehensive, this text covers a wide range of Western and non-Western cultures for analysis and comparison.
Readings from the best-selling Spradley/McCurdy, Conformity and Conflict: Readings in Cultural Anthropology, 12/e have been integrated with this edition of Cultural Anthropology. Orna Johnson uses the lens of cultural materialism as her guide while providing an analysis that demonstrates how the Spradley readings relate to each chapter, providing insider and outsider interpretations of the articles. This new “Through the Lens of Cultural Materialism” feature makes a distinction between emic (insiders’) and etic (outsiders’) perspectives–an integral part of Marvin Harris’ paradigm of cultural materialism.
The seventh edition reflects an increased emphasis on the universal pattern model through graphics and new content throughout each chapter. The universal pattern model is introduced in Chapter 2 and applied throughout the text to reinforce how differences in civilization affect infrastructure and adaptive patterns.
