CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY: A PROBLEM-BASED APPROACH, 7TH EDITION uses a hands-on, active-learning approach to encourage critical thinking and discussion as students examine research problems studied by anthropologists. Students analyze their own culture as a basis for understanding the cultures of others. Presentations are organized around research problems rather than topics, creating a natural, integrated discussion of concerns, such as kinship, caste, gender roles, and religion. Students explore subjects within the context of meaningful questions. This brief, affordable approach provides flexibility for you to add original research or ethnographies to enrich students' exposure to anthropology. An option with CourseMate is available.
