CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY: AN APPLIED PERSPECTIVE not only provides a comprehensive overview of the discipline, but also fully integrates the application of the theories, insights, and methods of cultural anthropology to contemporary situations that students -- both majors and non-majors -- are likely to encounter in their lives. The Eleventh Edition is streamlined (with each chapter trimmed by ten percent), further strengthens its two themes of economics and the environment and community and social responsibility, and speaks more directly to students with a greater number of contemporary examples that deal with non-academic career opportunities and the application of anthropological concepts in the workplace.

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!
