Summary

A recentNational Academy of Sciencesinductee, Conrad Phillip Kottak offers an up-to-date holistic introduction to general anthropology from the four-field perspective. Kottak emphasizes why anthropology should matter to students and how students can use anthropology to better understand themselves. "Bringing It All Together" essays found throughout the text demonstrate the integrated and comparative nature of anthropology. New "Through the Eyes of Others" essays offer the perspectives of foreign students and recent graduates who present their own cultures of origin in contrast with contemporary American culture. Thought-provoking questions now begin each chapter to highlight key themes and spark discussions and critical thinking. .
