DESCRIPTION

The most wide-ranging collection of its kind, Heath's latest edition offers forty-seven articles on the peoples and institutions of Middle and South America. Based on original research by social scientists and chosen for their clarity and jargon-free writing, the Third Edition's contributions cover a diversity of themes and areas reflecting recent developments in both anthropology and Latin America. Topics include image and reality, the anthropological enterprise, traditional and modern cultures, identity and ethnicity, relations of power, and views of the world. Brief editorial introductions place each article in a broader context, and recommended readings offer excellent sources for pursuing topics in greater depth.
