OverviewProvide a dialogue in your classroom with CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY: A PROBLEM-BASED APPROACH, 7th Edition. Using a hands-on, participatory, active-learning approach that encourages critical thinking and discussion, this leading text introduces key research problems studied by anthropologists. Within the book's engaging narrative, authors Richard Robbins and Rachel Dowty teach students to analyze their own culture as a basis for understanding the cultures of others. The approach is intended to appeal to the learning styles of a diverse student population. Presentations are organized around research problems rather than topics, creating a natural, integrated discussion of traditional concerns, such as kinship, caste, gender roles, and religion. Students explore these subjects within the context of meaningful questions. The text's brief length and manageable cost provide the flexibility to add original research or ethnographies to enrich students' exposure to anthropology.
