Publisher: Waveland Press, Inc.
A unique explanation of how humans are the same, how they become different, and how they can recover common ground! The problems of human diversity are complex, widespread, and continuing. This concise work meets the challenges of addressing human diversity by supplying students with the necessary framework to grasp the dynamics of human interaction at both group and personal levels. Middleton’s well-written treatment sharply focuses on diverse groups across their cultural and subcultural borders. Readers are exposed to the anthropological approach and the hard-earned lessons about dialogue and diversity through the book’s many extracts of personal accounts and gritty field experiences depicting anthropologists’ attempts to understand other cultures. In the end, students will be better able to think critically about differences and similarities among human groups, to appreciate personally the risk and rewards of engaging others, and to understand the necessity for making the effort in the first place.
