Interpretations of Culture in the New Millennium

Ethnography is fundamental to cultural anthropology, and social/cultural anthropology courses are normally the most heavily enrolled classes within any anthropology program. There is not, however, an abundance of original texts available and appropriate for student use. This series is dedicated to reasonably short, readable ethnographic texts. The editors seek authors with extensive knowledge and ethnographic experience in particular cultural areas. Each book focuses on the way of life of contemporary people, is theoretically informed, and based upon extensive field research.
