Book Description

May 1, 2010 1577666755 978-1577666752 3
The key to crossing the borders of our own world is found in probing the experience and interest of Others as filtered through aspects of their culture.

Middleton s fair, uncluttered synthesis of a wide-ranging topic continues to offer inspiration for thinking about what it means to be different from and similar to Others. Brief ethnographic excerpts are interwoven to demonstrate the hold that culture has on us. Such firsthand experiences, reported by anthropologists, reveal the challenging and sometimes humorous situations that can arise when we attempt to understand Others and when they do the same with us. Heralded by Anthropology Today: Middleton, by making the sensory and intellectual challenge of culture shock so central to his pedagogic strategy, has found common ground that should unite all schools of cultural anthropology.

The work brims with valuable insights that broaden possibilities to achieve rewarding human interaction, whether in our own neighborhood or across the globe. Arguably one of the best contemporary treatments of cultural diversity available, the latest edition includes expanded discussions of applied anthropology and ethics.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor January 30, 2010
Format:Paperback
This product was trash. The entire book showed in had been submerged in water. The pages were wrinkly and therefore, made the book difficult to read. Especially with the boring contents of the book, it is important that it can be read without problems. That book was a pain.
