Book Description

An exclusive alternative to more traditional; encyclopedic introductory texts; Anthropology: What Does It Mean to Be Human 4th Edition (PDF) takes a question-oriented approach that includes cutting-edge theory and new ways of looking at important contemporary issues such as human rights; power; and inequality. With a total of sixteen chapters; this appealing; full-color textbook is an ideal one-semester overview that digs deep into anthropology without overwhelming any of the anthropology students.


The question-based approach will involve students. It is a complete length–not too big–but not missing anything either.” — Christa Abdul-Karim; University of Idaho

This textbook Anthropology 4th edition is a remarkable product and value. I really like the ‘In Their Own Words’ sections within each chapter. They offer tangible; real-world connections that we can expand upon in a class discussion.” — Scott Legge; Macalester College

I love the question-oriented approach. The ‘Anthropology in Everyday Life’ feature is mainly good; showing the relevance of anthropology. I find the combination of brief chapter summaries and abundant; rich examples throughout the chapters to be a captivating combination.” — Mary Theresa Bonhage-Freund; Alma College

The approach is inquisitive; as it makes the reader interested. Chapter headings are not statements; but are questions that allow for more critical thinking; they motivate students how to think; rather than telling them only what to think. I love the methodology of this ebook. It is much more applied compared to other textbooks.” — Jaclyn McWhorter; Agnes Scott College

The Socratic method is a fine way to get students to think about their own questions in the background of what they are learning. This lets them to imerge the four fields in a topical way. The authors do a very beneficial job of offering a variety of different examples from throughout the world; giving it a remarkable global perspective.” — Jason Gonzalez; University of Georgia
