Cultural anthropology takes a unique and holistic approach to the study of cultural anthropology. Transcending mere descriptions, the text explains not only what humans are and were like, but also how they got to be that way, in all their variety. Authors Carol and Melvin Ember provide comparative, cross cultural insights based on an evidence-based approach, which is highly relevant today. The 15th edition offers a streamlined narrative that makes it easier for instructors to cover all aspects of the discipline in a single semester, as well as thoroughly updated research that ensures an up-to-date learning experience. Features: global issues boxes explore worldwide social problems. Some of these boxes are new and many were adapted from material in the global problems Chapter of the previous edition. Perspectives on diversity boxes shed light on issues pertaining to gender, ethnicity, and sexual orientation, both in anthropology and everyday life. Applied anthropology boxes provide students with a thorough understanding of the vast range of issues to which anthropological knowledge can be usefully applied. Current research boxes focus on anthropological research and highlight how this work can be used to help others. The 15th edition has been updated with current research citations to ensure that students are receiving the latest information. Highlights include the following: -coverage of issues such as whether language promotes sexist thinking in Chapter 5 -New information on Environmental and Climate change in chapters 2, 5, and 6; and -updated and new content on global inequality
