Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The global approach to cultural anthropology that this book takes directs attention to Western and non-Western traditional and complex societies; thus making this book an ideal resource for all anthropologists. This book utilizes a political ecology perspective, which combines cultural ecology, with its emphasis on adaptation and political economy, which focuses on the links between productive activity, trade, and distribution of power. The book also explores the effects of colonization, trade and capitalism on the local indigenous and minority groups taking action, in both constructive and destructive ways. MAREKT: Emerging anthropologists and sociologists.
