From the Publisher"The authors have selected a good range of color photographs that complement the associated text. I enjoy them as ethnographic as well as aesthetic resources and I ask for student responses to images in the text and supplemental films. The images, whether alone or in association with others, provide the students with fodder for discussion and ethnological comparison. Importantly, the photos provide images of the range of cultural and physical expression found in the human species. This is a resource for students interested in learning about the world around them, especially when they have had limited experiences with cultural differences."
"The boxed feature called 'Other Voices' is, in my opinion, one of the outstanding features of the text.... This is one of those innovative features of 'Humanity' that separates it from other introductory texts."
"'A Closer Look' - This special feature uses an article from contemporary popular media, and I think that is a good way to highlight the applied perspectives of the discipline."
"I find the text to be well written, easy to understand, and a very informative introduction to the discipline. The authors use an effective range of ethnographic material to illustrate concepts and ideas presented throughout."
