Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Truly integrating issues of class, gender, race, ethnicity, and age, Miller's contemporary text engages students by concretely showing the relevance of anthropology to their lives. Faculty and students alike praise the book's proven ability to generate class discussion, effectively promote student learning, and facilitate good teaching. Utilizing clear writing, a balanced theoretical approach, and engaging examples, Miller stresses the importance of considering social inequality, cultural change, and applied aspects of anthropology throughout the book. The rich examples of gender, ethnicity, race, class, and age thread through the core topical coverage of economic systems, the life-cycle, health, kinship, social organization and politics, language, religion, and expressive culture. Each chapter highlights an example of applied anthropology and connects with students by providing practical tips about how they can use anthropology in their everyday lives and careers. The final two chapters provide in-depth coverage of how migration is changing world cultures and how international development policies and programs are most effective when shaped according to local people's cultures.
