Long DescriptionAn introduction to cultural anthropology which uses ethnographic film, this concise text focuses on 14 cultures. These are used to illustrate concepts throughout the book, and are also the subject of the 21 film clips which accompany it. A ''Focus Overview Box'' highlights key facts about the culture. In addition, each chapter highlights one or more films, which are described in the ''Seeing Anthropology'' feature. This feature includes a case study of the culture of the film, and a set of questions which direct the reader/viewer to certain key elements in the film. A video including 10-minute clips from each film is packaged with the book.
