Conrad Kottak offers college and university students a thematic-focused resource available for rental in his textbook entitled Cultural Anthropology: Appreciating Cultural Diversity, ISBN 9780078116988. With an emphasis on the appreciation of anthropology, this latest edition provides a modern holistic approach to the presentation of cultural anthropology. Various themes are highlighted throughout this text including appreciating the experiences students bring to the classroom, appreciating cultural diversity, and appreciating the field of anthropology. Various effective features are incorporated to further student comprehension and application of concepts such as 'Understanding Ourselves' chapter openers and 'Through the Eyes of Others' boxes that show how anthropology helps us understand ourselves. New features include 'Appreciating Diversity' boxes that focus on the various forms of human biological and cultural diversity as well as 'Appreciating Anthropology' boxes that focus on the value and usefulness of anthropological research and approaches. Cultural Anthropology: Appreciating Cultural Diversity is succinctly organized by Conrad Kottak across three sections and 15 comprehensive chapters. This book begins with part I offering students an 'Introduction to Cultural Anthropology' with chapters devoted to defining anthropology, topics surrounding culture, theory and methods in cultural anthropology, as well as applying anthropology. Part II focuses on 'Exploring Cultural Diversity' with topics presented such as language and communication, ethnicity and race, making a living, political systems, gender, marriage, families, kinship, and descent, religion, and arts, media, and sports. Part III concludes this book with a look at 'The Changing World.' These final chapters offer coverage of the world system and colonialism as well as global issues today.
