Additional Product Information:
Mirror for Humanity is a brief introduction to sociocultural anthropology, also covering linguistic and applied anthropology. Its shorter length increases the instructor’s options for assigning additional reading—case studies, readers, and other supplements—within a one semester course. Mirror For Humanity can also work well in a quarter system, for which traditional texts may be too long. While presenting cultural anthropology’s core concepts and topics, Mirror also aims to demonstrate anthropology’s relevance to the 21st-century world we inhabit. The text aims to instill an appreciation of cultural diversity, of cultural anthropology as a field, and of how an anthropological approach can build on, and help make sense of, the experience that students bring to the classroom.
