Through the Lens of Anthropology is a concise introduction to anthropology that uses the twin themes of food and sustainability to illustrate the connected nature of the discipline’s many subfields. Beautifully illustrated throughout, with over 150 full-color images, figures, feature boxes, and maps, this is an anthropology book with a fresh perspective, a lively narrative, and plenty of popular topics. The new edition enhances the food and sustainability focus and builds a stronger narrative voice with extended examples and case studies. An entirely new section on decolonization, more Indigenous content, and updated material on biological anthropology make the second edition even more relevant for those interested in learning more about the discipline of anthropology.
