What Does it Mean to Be Human?

Fourth Edition

Robert H. Lavenda and Emily A. Schultz

A unique alternative to more traditional, encyclopedic introductory texts, Anthropology: What Does It Mean to Be Human?, Fourth Edition, takes a question-oriented approach that incorporates cutting-edge theory and new ways of looking at important contemporary issues such as power, human rights, and inequality. With a total of sixteen chapters, this engaging, full-color text is an ideal one-semester overview that delves deep into anthropology without overwhelming students.

New to this Edition:

  • Reordered chapters for a more logical subject progression
  • A new chapter, "What Can Anthropology Teach Us about Sex, Gender, and Sexuality?"
  • Globalization content integrated throughout
  • A detailed discussion of ethics in the ethnographic methods section
  • Updated references and examples throughout
