Format: Paperback
While providing nice categorized details about various cultures, it's sloppy, includes a lot of pointless quotes and citations from out of date sources and blatantly incorrect information.

Here's an example, in Chapter 4, it says "More than 400 million Haitians have received food aid"

Haiti has a population of ~10,000,000. What were they thinking? "400 million? Yeah, that sounds right."

This is our textbook for a Cultural Anthropology class and I have sincerely enjoyed the class and the book! The book offers extremely interesting sketches of unique cultures who attempt to hold fast to their traditions and values as encroachment threatens to bring modernity and its myriad problems to bear. We have two more weeks of class and I am soooo sorry to have it end however, I will continue to refer to and re-read Culture Sketches.

Although none of the pages from the textbook were missing, there was still a large amount of highlighting done inside the book before I got it in the mail, as well as several sticky notes about what appeared to be someone's homework assignments. The book was still able to be used, though.

the book had a lot of water damage, and was very hard to get some pages open. Also had pink marks all over some pages.
