The implications of cultural diversity through human existence are discussed in detail in the book, Conformity and Conflict: Readings in Cultural Anthropology. Now on its 14th edition, it continues to impress students and instructors with its streamlined research and effective combination of classic and timely readings. This powerful tool in understanding human behavior was authored by James Spradley and David McCurdy and offers an in-depth coverage of anthropological concepts and theories. The latest edition brings together some of the most effective materials and readings from the past editions, combining it with new ideas and research to make the textbook more relevant. Conformity and Conflict: Readings in Cultural Anthropology (14th Edition) ISBN 9780205234103 is divided into 10 parts (a total of 40 chapters). The first part talks about culture and ethnography, featuring works from author James Spradley, Claire Sterk, and Richard Borshay Lee. A revised version of George Gmelch's Nice Girls Don't Talk to Rastas is also integrated, alongside readings about language and communication, followed by works that talk about subsistence and ecology, like Richard Reed's Forest Development the Indian Way. One part talks about economic systems, while another delves into kinship and family. Other chapters talk about identity, roles and groups, featuring new materials like You@Work: Jobs, Identity, and the Internet by Brenda Mann, along with Lila Abu-Lughod's Do Muslim Women Really Need Saving? There are also readings about law and politics, along with insights about religion, magic, and world view. Spradley and McCurdy were also successful in incorporating readings about globalization, like Theodore Bestor's How Sushi Went Global and the new Village Walks: Tourism and Globalization among the Tharu of Nepal by Arjun Guneratne and Kate Bjork. The final part of the book talks about culture change and applied anthropology.
