Ideal for any Cultural Anthropology course, this brief and inexpensive collection of ethnographic case studies offers a concise introduction to thirteen cultures and exposes students to ethnography without overwhelming them with excessive reading material. Each sketch was selected for its interest to students and for its ability to reflect the basic concepts found in introductory courses. Each sketch features a critical thinking question at its close which enables students to test their understanding of how and why the mini-ethnography illuminates the anthropological theory presented in their textbook. All sketches follow a logical, consistent internal organization as they introduce students to major themes such as geography, creation myth, history, socio-political systems, and belief systems.

This ethnographic case book is a perfect supplement to Cultural Anthropology, eighth edition by Conrad Kottak, providing students an opportunity to further explore the cultures discussed in that book, but works well in any anthropology course where individual ethnographies are too detailed.
Each culture sketch has been updated to include new research and current information on the cultures.
