Anthropology: What Does It Mean to Be Human? takes a question-oriented approach that helps students understand current anthropological issues, consider them critically, and apply them to their own lives. A unique alternative to more traditional, encyclopedic introductory texts, Anthropology: What Does It Mean to Be Human? takes a question-oriented approach that illuminates major concepts for students. Structuring each chapter around an important question, the authors explore what it means to behuman, incorporating answers from all four major subfields of anthropology - cultural anthropology, biological anthropology, linguistic anthropology, and archaeology - and offering a more balanced perspective than other texts. They address central issues of the discipline, highlighting thecontroversies and commitments that are shaping contemporary anthropology.
