by Gary Ferraro

This mainstream, comprehensive cultural anthropology text takes an applied perspective to the study of society's behavior. This application of anthropological knowledge, theory, and methods to the solution of specific societal problems is integrated throughout the text in such a manner that it shows the student what can be done with anthropology today. Applied anthropology, for most of the last decade, has been a major focus for the beginning cultural course.

Met my expectations
Just to alleviate any concerns about the digital version of this book, the Kindle version's formatting is just fine. It's literally the exact same thing as the text book. The only difference is the price.

The digital rental is the cheapest alternative I've been able to find for a book that typically hovers around the $200 price tag. Pocket the $170 and save it for your tuition. There are better uses for that kind of money than a class that probably for most is just some required elective.

Fellow students. My advice to you is keep the money unless you're absolutely certain you want the book... and even then. For a blood sacrifice like the normal asking price... I say go digital. At least you get the search tool as well.
Great book!
Well it's a little bizarre to be writing a review for a class textbook, but I had to complain to someone.

First off, I had the digital version of this book. Maybe the print copy isn't as terrible, but that's no excuse.

There are TONS of grammatical errors in this book. There are sentences that seem to have been started with one ending in mind and then ended differently, leaving the sentence with unnecessary words that disrupt the flow of the sentence.

This quote in particular, from chapter 3, demonstrates what I'm talking about. "Yet at the end of the day, maintaining the SfAA and AAA's code of professionally responsibility to do no harm is paramount to working with in any population." If you can make sense of the sentence, please tell me. Obviously, the message is clear enough but the way it's written is just.....awful.

(In case you really don't get what's wrong with that sentence, I'm pretty sure this is how it was meant to be: 'Yet at the end of the day, maintaining the SfAA and AAA's code of professional responsibility to do no harm is paramount to working in any population'. You could argue that 'with' should have been kept instead, but I think 'in' works better.)

This is the worst error I have found so far, but I'm only on chapter 5. There are many other, smaller errors that you can somewhat ignore but they are still jarring enough to break focus.

If anyone actually proofread this textbook (which I highly doubt), they did a horrible job and the next edition should be edited by someone who actually pays attention to what they're editing.
I got this for my daughter for her college class. It served it's purpose at less cost than a new book.
Wasn't in the best shape when I got it, but need it for classes.
Great text and had a lot of modern references to current racial and cultural issues.
