Integrating current material on globalization, gender, class, race, ethnicity, and other contemporary social issues throughout the book, Barbara Miller'sCultural Anthropology in a Globalizing World text engages students with compelling ethnographic examples and demonstrates the relevance of cultural anthropology to their lives. Rich examples of gender, ethnicity, race, class, and age thread through the topical coverage of economic systems, the life-cycle, health, kinship, social organization, politics, language, religion, and expressive culture. Each chapter highlights applied anthropology and provides students with practical tips about how they can use anthropology in their everyday lives. The last two chapters address the urgent issues of how migration is changing world cultures and the importance of local cultural values in shaping international development policies and programs. This book, based on Millerrs"s full-lengthCultural Anthropology text, will generate class discussion, increase faculty-student engagement, and enhance student learning. Through clear writing, a balanced theoretical approach, and engaging examples, Miller stresses the importance of social inequality, cultural change, and applied aspects of anthropology throughout the book.
