Mirror for Humanity: A Concise Introduction to Cultural Anthropology

Publication Abstract

Kottak, Conrad. 2005. Mirror for Humanity: A Concise Introduction to Cultural Anthropology. Boston: McGraw Hill. (5th Edition)

Written by a prominent scholar in the field, Mirror for Humanity is designed to provide a concise, up-to-date, inexpensive introduction to cultural anthropology. It carefully balances coverage of core topics with contemporary changes in the field. Since no single or monolithic theoretical perspective orients this book, instructors with a wide range of views and approaches can use it effectively. The combination of shorter length, lower cost, and readability make Mirror for Humanity a perfect match for cultural anthropology courses that use ethnographies along with a main text.
