From the Publisher"Using an innovative and novel framework, Delaney's Investigating Culture moves students through a series of anthropological concepts and demonstrates the ways in which universal human concepts- time, space, family, status and gender are reformulated across the breadth of human cultural diversity. This book draws from classical and contemporary ethnographic texts providing students a week-by week journey through the study of human culture- pedagogically brilliant, easy to teach and well structured, this work provides students with engaging assignments, topics for discussion and advanced questions for those interested in more advanced research. I use it every year..."'

PRAISE FOR FIRST EDITION
"Engaging, intelligent, and intellectually generous, Investigating Culture introduces students to cultural anthropology —- and reintroduces all of us to our everyday worlds as seen through ethnographic eyes. Delaney brings together acute observation, revelatory projects, telling and appropriate comparisons, and an imaginative and stimulating range of readings. A book I'm eager to teach!"
Don Brenneis, University of California, Santa Cruz
"A splendid achievement. Carol Delaney has written an absorbing and strikingly original introduction to anthropology. Investigating Culture takes students on a self-reflexive journey around the world and back home again. Courageous, conversational, scholarly, and engaging."
Carol Stack, University of California, Berkeley
