bookaddict reviewed Classic Readings in Cultural Anthropology on
Helpful Score: 1
Really fascinating compendium of classic articles on social behaviour. I loved this. Written as a text, it looks like, and could certainly be read by teenagers, but also great reading for adults, no "school" involved!
Brief, accessible, and inexpensive, this new reader has been carefully edited by text author Gary Ferraro to include those articles and excerpts from works that have been pivotal to the field of anthropology and that have endured over the decades. These eminently relevant selections allow students to further explore anthropological perspectives on key cultural topics such as culture, language and communication, ecology and economics, marriage and family, politics and social control, supernatural beliefs systems, and issues of culture change.
