"This anthology surveys the kind of readings that provide today s student of cultural anthropology with a first-rate introduction to the field. The collection constitutes a useful complement to any basic introductory text. The articles go beyond didactic discussion and review of concepts, terms, theories, and principles. Additional selections treat timely subject matter in a student-oriented manner.
