Changes in the Second Edition
The core content of the book remains the same in the second edition, but we have made some enhancements in response to feedback from instructors and students.
• New Introductory Chapter A new introduction, written by Katie Nelson and Lara Braff, places cultural anthropology in a four-fields context and offers students information about the variety of careers and perspectives in the discipline of anthropology.
• Enhanced E-Book Experience and Pagination The book has been reformatted so that the online and electronic versions are easier to read and navigate. The second edition has consistent page numbering in the electronic and print versions.
• Chapter Order Because the second edition of the book has grown to 19 chapters, the book has been divided into two parts. Chapters in the first section cover the fundamental topics found in most introductory cultural anthropology courses. The Development of Anthropological Ideas, written by Laura Nader, leads the second section, which focuses on in-depth discussion of some of the specialized topics typically covered in cultural anthropology courses. Since the chapters may be read in any combination or order, instructors have a wide range of specialized topics from which to choose to enhance their course.
