You will quickly want to turn the page to learn more about whats being uncovered and reviewed. The accounts are eloquently structured and the c This book is a collection of cultural scenarios and ethnographic studies undergone within different areas of study;the text doesn’t present itself as textbook lingo, rather its more like adrenaline parts of a journeyer’s blog highlights. The accounts are eloquently structured and the content in intellectually intriguing past the black and white words.
You’ll read a story at a time but they all overlap together to create a story of mankind’s overall cultural variety and similarities. It highlights very beautifully the intriguing nature of the different cultural foundations and their motifs, interpretations,and life’s artistic creativeness. You get to travel through different peoples mindsets,through their reviews, as they experience different parts of the world’s cultures while pondering their own stored knowledge juxtaposing to the emotional discoveries of life’s creativity and adaptability.
I definitely recommend reading this because it diversifies your perceptions of the universe by peoples lifestyle reflections of it, and it adds more colors and meaning to your understanding of human nature and evolution, and lastly, it explores and merges the most fascinating theme of psychological complexity and its manifested communication people between individuals.
You’ll close the book being more curious about the world and wanting to learn and observe it more carefully and actively. This is probably the best textbook I’ve ever had, mostly because it conflidt decidedly un-textbookish. Conformitg of [mostly] interesting articles, it was fairly easy to get through; I did actually read it! And despite being a textbook, we were assigned all, but like three, of the articles it contains.
So I did end up reading the whole god damn thing [or close to it]! Hooray for last week of my summer class and a short summer before fall term begins! This is a really excellent book filled with a variety of stories and scenarios that help to enlighten readers about popular topics and thoughts in Anthropology. I really enjoyed it and found it very helpful for critical thinking and examining of various social groups and situations.
I think if you really enjoy learning about what motivates certain cultural traditions and social expectations, this is a great read! Mar 07, Christy rated it it was amazing.
I’ve perused a lot of anthropology textbooks, as it was definitely a major interest of mine in college and we had no anthropology program in the schooland of all that I read, this was definitely my favorite.
Very readable and quite interesting, whether you’re a student or not. Feb 02, Laurie rated it it was amazing. A book comprised of engaging ethnographic articles on topics that shape human cultures around the world. Sep 02, Dawna rated it really liked it. Fascinating stories, I love this sort of reading. Fish’s “Mixed Blood” was conforjity eye-opener and should be required reading. Last time I checked, it was available as an online article, it’s about the origins of ‘race’.
Read as a text for an Introduction to Cultural Anthropology course. Decent anthology of writings about cultural anthropology. Covers a wide array of cultures and provides a decent primer for a new student. Feb 13, Spraxley M rated it really liked it.
