Explore cultural anthropology in an applied and fascinating way with Gary Ferraro's CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY: AN APPLIED PERSPECTIVE. 
This contemporary and student-relevant text gives you all the key material you need for your introductory course, plus it will show you that anthropology is for you! With real world applications of the principles and practices of anthropology, this book will help you learn to appreciate other cultures as well as your own.
Apply what you learn in this course to those situations that you are likely to encounter in your personal and professional life.
What can you do with anthropology today? Check out the real-life examples of cross-cultural misunderstandings and issues (in our popular "Cross-Cultural Miscues" features) to view 'culture at work.' Also, the book takes a look at specialized vocabularies as illustrated by "chickspeak" (the language of single, urban, upwardly mobile women), the war in Iraq, environmental degradation, and other contemporary topics.

  •     This item was in good shape but it took over 3 weeks to get to me when it said that it would take 3-5 days.
  •     A great textbook I used in college. Contains many examples of cultural differences, and if you're interested in that sort of thing, it's actually quite interesting.I used the international student edition for class, since I was able to get it at a better price, and the contents were just like in the original book. I recommend that option!
  •     This book is great for the course I am taking. The seller was excellent as well!
  •     This book was required for my Intro to Anthropology course. It is an interesting book, but I would not recommend it as a good text for an Intro class because it focuses only on cultural anthro, and aside from a brief mention, completely ignores the other sub fields of the discipline. It would be a good introduction to -cultural- anthropology but not to anthropology in general. The sub fields are so varied that one cannot take one and then assume that all other areas of the discipline are similar. It is true that they do overlap and each provides insight to the other, but do not assume this book will introduce you to all that you need to know about anthropology.
  •     Good delivery time and book was in good condition. Would purchase from this seller again.
  •     How often can you say you actually read an entire textbook for a course? I read this whole book; it was that well-written.The material is well presented, with plenty of examples from all over the world. The Cross-Cultural Miscues are frequently amusing and always informative. One of my favorites involved differences in humor across cultures.This textbook made a freshman level basics course more enjoyable than one expects of that type of course.
  •     I learned a lot from this book. It was well written, concise and covered a broad spectrum. Too bad the outlook for this science is not promising.
