This careful revision of one of the best-selling General Anthropology texts available now features vastly expanded coverage of physical anthropology and archaeology. This serves to make Kottak the most balanced introduction to the four fields of anthropology. A wealth of the �Where In The World� Maps lets students view important geographical data �up close� as well as in the broader context of the geographical area. Helpful marginal icons tell students when more information is available on the CD-ROM, Website, or elsewhere in the text. Engaging boxed features, �Interesting Issues�, �In the News�, and the widely-acclaimed �Beyond the Classroom,� capture student interest by focusing on provocative issues, current events, and student research. Easy-to-use end-of-chapter reviews now include an all-new numbered chapter summary which students will find indispensable as a study tool, as well as glossaries, critical thinking and internet exercises, and all-new case studies designed for use with Culture Sketches, 3/e by Peters-Golden, an ethnographic readings book available with Kottak.
