Written by the experienced author team of Susan Andreatta and Gary Ferraro, ELEMENTS OF CULTURE: AN APPLIED PERSPECTIVE is a concise new text for the cultural anthropology course. It covers all the major topics in a traditional course in twelve brief chapters that allow readers to access the main concepts quickly. The book's streamlined content, pedagogy, and real-world applications focus readers on global current events and issues that illustrate the usefulness of anthropology in careers and in solving societal problems. The brief format allows instructors the flexibility to assign additional readings, including ethnographic case studies or selections from CourseReader's online "Editor's Choice" list of original applied anthropology articles.
