Essentials of Cultural Anthropology
This text is a brief, more affordable version of the Peoples and Bailey, Humanity: An Introduction to Cultural Anthropology, 8th Edition (2009). Its coverage of core topics, smaller size, and economical price make it well suited for instructors who wish to adopt a core text along with supplemental texts such as readers and ethnographies. The text shares, in a briefer format, the same rich characteristics that made Humanity a best-seller over the years: strong scholarship, rich ethnographic examples and a unique focus on modern ethnicity and the survival of indigenous peoples.
