Written by Kottak, recent inductee to The National Academy of Sciences, this text continues to offer a holistic, four-field perspective introduction to anthropology. To emphasize anthropology's integrated and comparative nature, "Bringing It All Together" essays show how anthropology's sub-fields and dimensions combine to interpret and explain a common topic. Another distinctive feature, "Understanding Ourselves," illustrates the relevance of anthropological facts and theories to students' everyday lives.
