This concise and affordable introduction to the basic ideas and practices of contemporary cultural anthropology addresses the needs of anthropology professors who make extensive use of ethnographies and other supplementary readings in their courses.

Review:


"Core Concepts in Cultural Anthropology is comprehensible, well structured, and not overloaded with information, which makes it ideal for introductory classes. I recommend the book without hesitation."--Ralph M. Becker, University of Northern Colorado


"This is a fantastic supplement to course lectures and a companion to reading ethnographies."--Ana Croegaert, University of New Orleans


"Core Concepts in Cultural Anthropology provides students with a firm grounding in key anthropological concepts and allows me to assign a reader and ethnography in the course. This enables students to learn about how anthropology is practiced in a way that is far more in depth than any textbook could offer."-Carolyn Schwarz, Goucher College


"This book is beautifully written. Its clarity and intellectual approach to topics commonly explored in introduction to socio-cultural anthropology is impressive. It is one of the best textbooks I have read in years."--Orit Tamir, New Mexico Highlands University
