This text offers an introduction to the five subdisciplines of anthropology: cultural, physical, archaeological, anthropological linguistics and applied anthropology. To reflect the role of anthropology in today's world, Professor Kottak has revised both the content and the organization of the text in a way which gives the students a balanced introduction to anthropology and its relevance. The special theme of this edition is "Preserving Cultural Diversity in the Face of Globalization". Two new chapters - "Ethnicity and Ethnic Relations" and "Cultural Exchange and Survival" - explore the significance of the demise of the Soviet Union and world-wide ethnic conflicts, as well as multiculturalism in the US and Canada, and cultural survival globally. "In-the-news" boxes describe recent discoveries on relevant topics that are attracting public attention. Many chapters, especially the chapter on race, have new sections. The following are also available: diskette Mac (0-07-834341-0); diskette 5.25 (0-07-83444-5); diskette 3.50 (0-07-834345-3); and instructor's manual (0-07-035919-9).
