Ideal for any Cultural Anthropology course, this brief and inexpensive collection of ethnographic case studies introduces students to fifteen cultures and exposes them to ethnography without overwhelming them with excessive reading material.
Each sketch, or chapter, was selected for its relevance to students and for its ability to reflect the basic concepts found in introductory courses.
Each sketch concludes with critical thinking questions that enable students to test their understanding of how and why this mini-ethnography illuminates the anthropological theory presented in their textbook.
All sketches follow a logical, consistent organization as they introduce students to major themes such as geography, myth creation, history, sociopolitical systems, and belief systems..
