Summary

Ideal for any Cultural Anthropology course, this brief and inexpensive collection of ethnographic case studies offers a concise introduction to thirteen cultures and exposes students to ethnography without overwhelming them with excessive reading material. Each sketch was selected for its interest to students and for its ability to reflect the basic concepts found in introductory courses. Each sketch and features a critical thinking question at its close which enables students to test their understanding of how and why the mini-ethnography illuminates the anthropological theory presented in their textbook. All sketches follow a logical, consistent internal organization as they introduce students to major themes such as geography, creation myth, history, socio-political systems, and belief systems.
