Overview

Invitation to Anthropology / Edition 4

Lassiter (anthropology, Bell State University) offers an accessible and interesting introduction to cultural anthropology for undergraduates and general readers, illustrating the varied applications of the anthropological perspective for real world problems on the local, regional, and global scale. Early chapters focus on underlying assumptions and concepts that drive anthropological theory, and later chapters explore three cross cultural human issues: gender, marriage/family/kinship, and religion. B&w photos are included. Annotation c. Book News, Inc.,Portland, OR
