    Abstract

    Book synopsis: How do people learn and experience their culture? How do people make a living? What does it mean to be in a family? How do we make sense of peoples’ beliefs and ritual practices? In exploring questions such as these, this cultural anthropology reader focuses on contemporary global concerns and includes a significant number of articles by authors from outside the United States. A dynamic development in the fourth edition is the inclusion of “Anthropology and Public Debate” sections, in which opposing anthropological arguments on current hot topics are featured. In addition, “Doing Fieldwork” essays consider the nature and dilemmas of fieldwork, the changing status of the field, the nature of anthropological learning in the field, and ethical issues and dilemmas.
