As an Anthro major, I have read a lot of Anthropology textbooks in my day. This one is actually better than most, and does a great job of engaging the reader and providing a wide array of cultures.

Unfortunately, this book's greatest asset is also its greatest weakness. The wide range of essays are a great segway point into even deeper discussion, but this book never actually reaches the depths it needs to be useful on its own. Therefore, it is about 3 stars if used without another book or an excellent proffessor, and 5 stars if used with one or both of those things. 4 stars seems like a nice in-between.

For the price, the book could have been put together better. The paper feels cheap, and overall it is small and flimsy compared to much nicer textbooks out there for a much cheaper price. I understand Anthro textbooks are, unfortunately, much more expensive than textbooks of other subjects. However, this book is even more expensive than most other, prettier anthro textbooks.

This is the only text book that I willing read all the way through. In fact, I read more than was assigned. This is a great resource for understanding cultural anthropology, and the information is presented through personal accounts that let you better see a different culture's perspective. It gives an experience instead of pages upon pages of bland facts, but what makes this books so great is that you still get everything you need for a class. The terminology, the explanations, the theories and concepts; they're all still there. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to get a better understanding of the world, but doesn't want to fall asleep in the process.

Probably my favorite of the required textbooks. Totally worth the money I spent on it, as it's got lots of great readings in it. We use it a lot in class, but I'd recommend it even if you don't use it a lot in class. If you're an aspiring Anthropology major, it's got good material and good sources that are descriptive and easy to understand. It's easy to study from, too.

It's a very good book. I'm taking a cultural anthro class currently and it was a requirement. I'm enjoying it and learning from it.
Iaran
Good reader with some interesting pieces, however, some seem to contain information which cannot be attributed or supported from other sources, making the scholarly use of this piece highly dubitable, as well as its efficacy as a college textbook.
Lanionge
As advertised.

Same articles as the 14th edition at a cheaper price. It has all the material you need to reference but I will say that if you're required to get this book just for the readings (do not need the essay questions ending each chapters) most articles are available in PDF version online by various institutions.
Affordable and in hardly used. Much better alternative to new.
