About the Book

Cultural Anthropology: A Perspective on the Human Condition, Third Canadian Edition, A Perspective on the Human Condition introduces students to the history, methods, and theoretical approaches of the discipline. Drawing on experiences from their own fieldwork and the work of other top researchers, the authors explore how cultural creativity, human agency, and the material conditions of everyday life interact to shape cultural practices. Discussions of ongoing controversies—including tribalism vs globalization, the vulnerability of transborder citizens, attempts to use cultural relativism as an excuse for human rights violations, and increasing inequality between "have" and "have not" regions—show how cultural anthropologists can apply their knowledge and skills to tackle the world's most pressing social problems.
