This time around I’m trying to see if teaching cultural anthropology “works” by juxtaposing those books. Different from other introductory textbooks, this book is an edited volume with each chapter written by a different author. Each author has written from their experiences working as an anthropologist and that personal touch makes for an accessible introduction to .

Because the second edition of the book has grown to 19 chapters, the book has been divided into two parts. Chapters in the first section cover the fundamental topics found in most introductory cultural anthropology courses. The Development of Anthropological Ideas, written by Laura Nader, leads the second section, which focuses on in-depth. The author applies university level feminist discourse to secondary level teaching, to reveal complexity in the ways in which women’s roles in and experiences of the Holocaust are taught at Jewish institutions. The book ends, somewhat ambivalently, with Said’s observation about a lack of neutrality in the study of history.

Anthropology, then, is the study of human beings as cultural animals. Sociocultural anthropology draws its data from the direct study of contemporary peoples living in a wide variety of circumstances, from peasant villagers and tropical forest hunters and gatherers to urban populations in modern societies, as well as from the history and.   Section II of the book, Nutrition and Health, begins with a chapter on “Teaching Obesity: Stigma, Structure, and Self.” The authors of Chapter 3 describe the ways they use the topic of obesity to address key concepts in their upper and lower division undergraduate courses on anthropology and global health including poverty, discrimination.
