How do people learn and experience their culture? How do people make a living? What does it mean to be in a family? How do we make sense of peoples' beliefs and ritual practices? In exploring questions such as these, this cultural anthropology reader focuses on contemporary global concerns and includes a significant number of articles by authors from outside the United States. A dynamic development in the fourth edition is the inclusion of "Anthropology and Public Debate" sections, in which opposing anthropological arguments on current hot topics are featured. In addition, "Doing Fieldwork" essays consider the nature and dilemmas of fieldwork, the changing status of the field, the nature of anthropological learning in the field, and ethical issues and dilemmas. - Publisher

Essence of anthropology( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The video for this lesson explains the four fields of anthropology, defines the concept of holism, and describes how anthropologists approach their subject matter from a holistic and comparative cross-cultural perspective in order to reach the broadest and most inclusive conclusions possible on their subject. Each field, cultural, physical (biological), linguistic anthropology, and archaeology, is described and situational material is included to illustrate how each field functions and interconnects with the others. Subfields to the four major fields, such as forensics and paleoanthropology, are introduced and discussed, and the concept that humans are biocultural beings, because of the simultaneous adaptations of our biology with culture, is illustrated. The video also introduces the student to the way anthropologists carry out their analyses through rigorous fieldwork and participant observation in order to create the ethnographies that describe humans cross-culturally. Applied anthropology, sometimes referred to as the fifth subfield of anthropology, is introduced
