Book Description

October 5, 2011 0078034876 978-0078034879 5
Introducing Cultural Anthropology, a short yet comprehensive anchor text, is an approachable, full-color introduction to cultural anthropology. This edition continues to provide students with the opportunity to explore anthropology's relevance to their own lives. Unique opening vignettes draw students into each chapter while the rich visual program allows professors to use a brief text without sacrificing visual appeal. "Try This" exercises encourage students to think critically and apply anthropological concepts, perspectives and methods, and the "Anthropology Around Us" boxes focus on the application of anthropological concepts featured in each chapter.

About the Author

Roberta Edwards Lenkeit is currently professor of anthropology at Modesto Junior College, Modesto, California where she has taught since 1976. She earned both her undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of California at Santa Barbara where, as a teaching assistant, she first learned how fun it was to share anthropology with introductory level students. After graduation, she spent four years as a full time instructor at the College of Marin in Kentfield, California. She also taught as an adjunct faculty member for two years at Mount Royal College in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. She is the recipient of many awards of recognition for outstanding teaching by the campus chapter of Alpha Gamma Sigma. Her special interests include comparative kinship, religion, applied anthropology, hominid evolution, lithic tool technology, and Upper Paleolithic cave art. She has done fieldwork in Spain, the Cook Islands, and French Polynesia. For relaxation Roberta gardens and raises banty hens. She is the author of Introducing Cultural Anthropology (2001, Mayfield Publishing).

3.0 out of 5 stars Needed it for school. April 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was an easy book to read, I had the kindle version and everything was really clear although there were a few pictures missing due to some kind of copy write claim, but they weren't important to the subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! September 13, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I rented this book for my Cultural Anthropology class. First of all, Amazon's rental program is simple and easy to use. Just order the book, and send it back at the end of the semester.

The book itself is one of the best textbook's I've had. It's extremely easy to read, and it is also a fun and interesting read (but I guess that's if you like Anthropology like I do).
