Humans presents the breadth of anthropology in a concise textbook planned for use with supplementary ethnographies. Designed for either an introductory four-field or cultural anthropology course, it covers the basic concepts of linguistics, archaeology, physical and cultural anthropology in a readable style with well-chosen illustrative examples. Instructors have found ethnographies most effective for teaching anthropological understanding; this text's brevity permits the instructor to assign several full-length case studies, without skimping the foundation for a holistic approach. The text covers the discipline and its major sub-fields, with a minimal use of technical terms. Both photo-essays drawn from the author's own fieldwork and examples taken from popular culture work to engage students, prompting them to question how it is we know what we know. A solid foundational text, Humans will suit any program.

This unique introduction to cultural anthropology is structured as a narrative, rather than a compendium of facts about cultures and concepts. It describes anthropology as a series of stories that emerge from cultural encounters in particular times and places. These moments of encounter are illustrated with reference to both classic and contemporary ethnographic examples--from Coming of Age in Samoa to Coming of Age in Second Life--allowing readers to grasp anthropology's sometimes problematic past, while still capturing the excitement and potential of the discipline. The second edition has been updated throughout with fresh ethnographic examples. It features a new introduction and two new chapters: one on economic anthropology and exchange, and one on health and medicine. A glossary has also been added for quick reference.
