Book Description

What is cultural anthropology; and how can it explain or even help resolve contemporary human problems?

Luis A. Vivanco and Robert L. Welsch’s Cultural Anthropology: Asking Questions About Humanity; 2nd Edition; (PDF) uses a questions based approach for teaching college students how to think anthropologically; helping them view cultural issues and everyday experiences as an anthropologist might.

Inspired by the common observation that 99% of a good answer is a good question; Cultural Anthropology 2nd edition combines a question centred pedagogy with the topics typically covered in an introductory course. It emphasizes upfront what the discipline of anthropology knows and which issues are in debate; and how a cultural perspective is relevant to understanding social; political; and economic dynamics in the contemporary world. Cultural Anthropology also represents an effort to close the gap between the realities of the discipline today and traditional views that are taught at the introductory level by bringing classic anthropological examples; cases; and analyses to bear on contemporary questions.
