Other People's Worlds PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Other People's Worlds free pdf The publication of "Other People's Worlds" nearly a decade ago offered readers the perfect introduction to cultural and social anthropology, introducing classic theoretical ideas of the key founders of cultural and social anthropology and placing them in their historical and geographical context. Now updated to incorporate the most recent developments in the field, the second edition of this successful text features two new chapters on key current issues, the incorporation of new first-hand accounts from contemporary indigenous peoples, and additional teaching and study aids.Retaining the careful structure of the first edition, so that one chapter builds on the next, "Other People's Worlds" covers the field's core topics in an even-handed and illuminating manner, introducing the reader to divergent views on all of the most basic subjects, including food, hygiene, gift-exchange, rites of passage, symbolism, religion, politics, and the environment, and raising awareness of the emotional value people place on those views. Incorporating a wide array of countries, it brings the subject of cultural and social anthropology right into the neighborhood of the reader, wherever they are in the world.Written in a refreshingly accessible style, "Other People's Worlds" offers a compelling introduction to an enigmatic and exciting subject, drawing out its relevance and value for the complex multicultural world in which we live.
