Cultural Anthropology

Asking Questions About Humanity

Second Edition

Robert L. Welsch and Luis A. Vivanco

What is cultural anthropology, and how can it explain--or even help resolve--contemporary human problems?

Robert L. Welsch and Luis A. Vivanco's Cultural Anthropology: Asking Questions About Humanity, Second Edition, uses a questions-based approach to teach students how to think anthropologically, helping them view cultural issues and everyday experiences as an anthropologist might.

  • A thoroughly revised chapter on material culture (Chapter 15)
  • New maps showing the locations of peoples and places discussed in each chapter
  • A new map that highlights examples related to the processes and outcomes of globalization
  • New chapter-opening stories
  • New thematic boxes
  • A new epilogue
