Seeing Anthropology continues to be the only cultural anthropology text available that allows for easy integration of ethnographic films into the introductory cultural anthropology course. This text truly incorporates films within the text by blending textbook content with fourteen ethnographic film clips that are put in the hands of students. More flexible ordering options are available with the new edition (See New to this Edition section below). One reviewer says, The greatest strengths of this text are its unique and skillful use of film clips to enhance student learningI can think of no better way to extend student learning in anthropology than the use of films, and there is no one more qualified to select and present anthropological films than the author of this book.
