CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY: AN APPLIED PERSPECTIVE, Tenth Edition, goes beyond providing a comprehensive overview of the discipline to fully integrate the application of the theories, insights, and methods of cultural anthropology to contemporary situations that students, both majors and non-majors, are likely to encounter in their lives. The Tenth Edition speaks more directly to students with a greater number of contemporary examples that deal with non-academic career opportunities and the application of anthropological concepts in the workplace. In addition, the new edition further strengthens two themes that run throughout the text--economics and the environment as well as community and social responsibility. Also new are Critical Thinking Questions at the end of each chapter, streamlined content (with the length of every chapter trimmed by ten percent), and an improved art program. The book's popular boxed features highlight 30 new topics such as recycling hotel soap, cruise ships that increase pollution, the appropriate use of Facebook in the office, and the conflict between secular values in the U.S. and religious values in the Islamic World.
