The first edition of Norton’s Essentials of Cultural Anthropology is out.

September 17, 2015

WW Norton’s most successful textbook for living in a multicultural and global age is now available in a concise Essentials edition. This “Toolkit for a Global Age” shows students that now, more than ever, global forces affect local culture, and that the tools of cultural anthropology are vital to participating in a global society. We are thrilled to have designed this new edition that emphasizes the discipline’s big questions, reinforcing key concepts beyond the classroom—in relationships, campus life, workplaces, religious communities, and our globalizing world.
