This is effectively an introductory textbook for first-year students of anthropology which I happened to pick up from my college library. To that extent it would be rather presumptuous of me to 'review' it (I am no expert), but I can say that it is fairly clear and readable as academic textbooks go.

This book wasn't what I expected but I enjoyed it anyway. It is written for anthropology 101 so introduces ideas without extensive elaborations. The bibliography and media notes are extensive though and I plan to use them to explore areas of interest to me.
