Essentials of Cultural Anthropology: A Toolkit for a Global Age by Kenneth J. Guest, ISBN-13: 978-0393265019
[PDF eBook eTextbook]
Publisher: W. W. Norton & Company; 1 edition (August 21, 2015)
The most successful new textbook for living in a multicultural and global age, now in a concise Essentials Edition.
Covering the essential concepts that drive cultural anthropology today in a newly streamlined format, Ken Guest’s Essentials of Cultural Anthropology: A Toolkit for a Global Age shows students that now, more than ever, global forces affect local culture, and that the tools of cultural anthropology are vital to participating in a global society. A “toolkit” approach emphasizes the discipline’s big questions and reinforces key concepts to show that these tools are useful beyond the classroom―in relationships, campus life, workplaces, religious communities, and our globalizing world.
