This is an inviting and broad text, covering all the major aspects of anthropology and introducing the basic concepts to beginners to the topic. Special features are the links to resources on the internet, and specific case studies highlighted separately to explain certain issues. This book is both a useful textbook for students of anthropology and an enjoyable read for those with an interest in cultures.
