Written by a prominent scholar in the field, this concise, up-to-date introduction to cultural anthropology carefully balances coverage of core topics with contemporary changes in the field. Since no single or monolithic theoretical perspective orients this book, instructors with a wide range of views and approaches can use it effectively. The combination of brevity and readability make Mirror for Humanity a perfect match for cultural anthropology courses that use readings or ethnographies along with a main text.

In 1999 the America Anthropological Association awarded Professor Kottak the AAA/Mayfield Award for Excellence in the Undergraduate Teaching of Anthropology.

Professor Kottak has done fieldwork in cultural anthropology in Brazil (since 1962), Madagascar (since 1966), and the United States.

2.0 out of 5 stars surprisingly terrible! June 19 2007
By L. Irwin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Well, this is just to say that I was surprised by how boring (and seemingly uninformative) this book is! The title really grabbed my attention and I love anthropology (especially cultural anthropology). However, for whatever reason, it just didn't do anything for me. In fact, it did LESS than anything for me! (there's another fifty dollars forever gone)...
