EXPLORES HOW CULTURAL ANTHROPLOGY IS RELEVANT TODAY

Ken Guest brings an anthropological and analytical approach to familiar experiences and shows how the tools of cultural anthropology are relevant to a globalising world. The book's popular "toolkit" approach is enhanced in this edition with new "The Social Life of Things" features, which examine everyday objects to see how they connect to global forces and affect local communities. "Your Turn: Fieldwork" exercises in the text and the companion Fieldwork Journal engage students in practising anthropology while end-of-chapter discussions ask students to apply what they've learned.

EMPHASISES GLOBALISATION AND CUTTING EDGE RESEARCH

Cultural Anthopology includes cutting-edge, chapters on "Race and Racism", "Ethnicity and Nationalism", "Sexuality", "Migration" and "Class and Inequality" and puts every chapter in the context of global change. With an emphasis on globalisation throughout the text, Guest includes compelling research conducted by contemporary cultural anthropologists to illustrate the importance of fieldwork in all areas of anthropology. "Anthropologists Engage the World" features—several of which are new to this edition—show how practising anthropologists apply anthropological thinking and methods to pressing social and political issues.
