  • Accessible to a wider range of students and educational settings
  • Provides a refreshing alternative to traditional textbooks by challenging students to think in new ways and to apply  ideas of culture to their own lives
  • Focuses on the ways that humans orient themselves, e.g., in space and time, according to language, food, the body, and the symbols provided by public myth and ritual
  • Includes chapters that frame the central issues and provide examples from a range of cultures, with selected readings, additional suggested readings, and student exercises
