内容説明

Ideal for any cultural anthropology course, this brief and inexpensive collection of ethnographic case studies exposes students to fifteen different cultures. "Culture Sketches" introduces students to ethnography without overwhelming them with excessive reading material. Each sketch, or chapter, was selected for its relevance to students and for its ability to reflect the basic concepts found in introductory courses. All sketches follow a logical, consistent organization that makes it easy for students to understand major themes such as geography, myth creation, history, sociopolitical systems, and belief systems. The new edition offers a new chapter, 'The Roma: Romanipe, Rights, and the Road Ahead', adding geographic breadth to the text.
