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.

supplement package and to order your complimentary desk copies today!
