Well-Organized and Informative
on August 13, 2013
I had to use this book for my required college intro to anthropology class. This book was great, as it was quite well-organized. Each chapter described a group of people, with a map that shows where they originate. The sections in the book divide the different aspects of the peoples, such as origin stories, social structure, and how they obtain sustenance. Within these sections are unique subsections that describe anything special or unique for the culture. (Bonus: The subsections are fairly small and digestible.)
While I did get bored at times with the book, not being all that interested in people studies, this was a easy-to-read book that helped me understand other cultures.
