      Dear Professor Popplestone,

      Our records indicate that you teach an introductory cultural
      anthropology course. I am delighted to inform you that Conrad Phillip
      Kottak has revised his brief introductory cultural anthropology text.
      The new sixth edition of Mirror for Humanity: A Concise Introduction to
      Cultural Anthropology recently published.

      Written by a prominent scholar in the field, this concise, up-to-date
      introduction to cultural anthropology 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 brevity and readability make Mirror for Humanity a
      perfect match for cultural anthropology courses that use readings or
      ethnographies along with a main text.

      The new sixth edition features these exciting new changes:
      Two New End-of-Chapter Boxes, one on anthropological fieldwork in
      northern Kenya (1) and one on restoring lost languages with a focus on
      Native American languages (4), along with several updated boxes, focus
      on current events and issues to help students relate to the text.
      Updated Charts, Tables, and Statistics throughout the text represent
      the most recent findings in the field of anthropology.
      New Organization has moved chapters, and in some cases material within
      chapters, that cover related content closer together for a more coherent
      progression through the book.
      Focus on global themes, trends, and issues have been strengthened even
      further in this edition through Anthropology Today boxes.

      This book is now available along with a website for your spring classes.
      Please follow the link below for more information on the text and
      supplement package and to order your complimentary desk copies today!


      Thank you for choosing McGraw-Hill Higher Education for your text book
      and educational product needs.
