In addition to a comprehensive overview of the discipline, CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY: AN APPLIED PERSPECTIVE, Ninth Edition, goes beyond basic introductory material by emphasizing the application of the theory, insights, and methods of cultural anthropology to contemporary situations that students, both majors and non-majors, are likely to encounter in their professional and personal lives. In the ninth edition, co-author Susan Andreatta adds her expertise in economic and medical anthropology to that of Gary Ferraro, who has worked extensively in the anthropology of business, education, and organizational structures. Through the boo’s lucid narrative and wealth of modern examples, students come to understand how to view the world in which they find themselves today. Chapter-opening applied case studies, such as one on Chinese-American children being sent to and returning from China (Chapter 9), catch the attention of students and remind them that the study of anthropology truly is relevant to our lives. Additional case studies, the popular Cross-Cultural Miscues presenting real-life examples, and Applied Perspectives features, including anthropology in the courtroom (Chapter 1) and Andreatta’s work with North Carolina fisherman (Chapter 7), are designated with a SWAP icon (Share with a Parent or friend) to encourage students to recognize the importance and necessity of understanding culture, what it is, and how it changes and impacts individuals living in today’s world.

Instituted by President Kennedy in 1961, the Peace Corps, through its thousands of volunteers, has changed life for millions of inhabitants of developing nations. But experience with the Peace Corps has also changed the lives of the volunteers. And these volunteers, in turn, have altered America's view of world cultures and its science of anthropology. This volume examines growth and change in American anthropology as the field has been influenced by Peace Corps volunteers. It does so through writings by 21 former Peace Corps volunteers, including the editors, who became professional anthropologists. Part I creates a general profile of Peace Corps volunteers who entered careers in anthropology. Part II presents specific accounts that discuss each of the contributors' motivations for joining the Peace Corps. The contributors also discuss their corps experiences, their reasons for choosing or maintaining careers in anthropology, the matches and mismatches of academic anthropology with experiences in the field, and the impact of the Peace Corps experience on academic anthropology. Several contributors reflect on their ongoing connections with the societies they lived in as volunteers.
