A leading name in anthropology, Conrad Philip Kottak continues to define student learning in the cultural anthropology course. Cultural Anthropology offers an up-to-date holistic introduction to anthropology from the four-field perspective. Key themes of appreciating the experiences students bring to the classroom, appreciating human diversity, and appreciating the field of anthropology are showcased throughout the text. The program presents anthropology’s core concepts and also demonstrates anthropology’s relevance to the 21st-century world we inhabit. Revisions to the 18th edition of Cultural Anthropology were extensively informed by student data, collected anonymously by McGraw-Hill’s adaptive learning system. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, and how they need it, so that your class time is more engaging and effective.
