Written in the belief that anthropology must be central in any undergraduate curricula that emphasizes cultural diversity, this textbook is written to serve a number of purposes, not the least of which is serving as a text for a college course designed to satisfy a general diversity requirement. Kottak (anthropology, U. of Michigan) and Kozaitis (anthropology, Georgia State U.) organize their material thematically, offering chapters on such North American diversity issues as ethnicity, the social construction of race, the biological dimensions of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age and generations, bodies and health, class, geographic diversity, speech, and family background.
