In addition to a comprehensive overview of the discipline, CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY: AN APPLIED PERSPECTIVE, Ninth Edition, goes beyond basic introductory material by emphasizing the application of the theory, insights, and methods of cultural anthropology to contemporary situations that students, both majors and non-majors, are likely to encounter in their professional and personal lives. In the ninth edition, co-author Susan Andreatta adds her expertise in economic and medical anthropology to that of Gary Ferraro, who has worked extensively in the anthropology of business, education, and organizational structures. Through the boo’s lucid narrative and wealth of modern examples, students come to understand how to view the world in which they find themselves today. Chapter-opening applied case studies, such as one on Chinese-American children being sent to and returning from China (Chapter 9), catch the attention of students and remind them that the study of anthropology truly is relevant to our lives. Additional case studies, the popular Cross-Cultural Miscues presenting real-life examples, and Applied Perspectives features, including anthropology in the courtroom (Chapter 1) and Andreatta’s work with North Carolina fisherman (Chapter 7), are designated with a SWAP icon (Share with a Parent or friend) to encourage students to recognize the importance and necessity of understanding culture, what it is, and how it changes and impacts individuals living in today’s world.

CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY: AN APPLIED PERSPECTIVE, Canadian Edition, goes beyond providing a comprehensive overview of the discipline and fully integrates the application of the theories, insights, and methods of cultural anthropology to contemporary situations. The authors recognize that cultures-Canadian and abroad-are in a constant state of flux and are continually interacting with each other both locally and globally. To capture this dynamic and to enhance student learning and illustrate the relevance of cultural anthropology in our everyday lives, current topics include the growth of information technologies, innovations such as multi-sited field research, reflexive and intersubjective approaches, human relations with the environment, religious and political conflict, medical anthropology, climate change, international migration, urbanization, development, and business anthropology. Student engagement is reinforced with strong pedagogical features and themes that encourage readers to reflect and think critically about issues like community and social responsibility, economics, and the environment. MindTap, a fully online learning solution, combines all learning tools-readings, multimedia, activities, and assessments-into a single Learning Path that guides the student through the curriculum and brings anthropology to life!
