Anthropology Unbound

A Field Guide to the 21st Century

Third Edition

E. Paul Durrenberger and Suzan Erem

Anthropology Unbound: A Field Guide to the 21st Century, Third Edition, demonstrates how viewing the world through an anthropological lens enhances our understanding of current topics like globalization, the new economy, jobs and careers, world trade, the condition of inner cities, and racial and ethnic relations. It makes anthropology accessible and even fun, with examples from "driving the porcelain bus" as an illustration of negative utility to reading the tags on a classmate's shirt as a way to discuss why it was made in another country.
