"I am overall ecstatic about this book. It is thorough, historically situated and current, written in a pleasurable and approachable but also complex and intellectual manner, it covers a broad range of topics and examples without being overbloated, overwrought, and domineering (a problem with many standard textbooks).  Dr Eller's voice is clear and carries through what is exciting and fascinating about anthropology while also critically rigorous and complex... In short, for me, this is the best textbook I have yet encountered...the 'standards' in the field are twice as expensive and half as good."- Faidra Papavasilliou, Georgia State University

"I must say that this is probably the best introductory textbook I have ever come across… It offers students the nuts and bolts of our discipline, while simultaneously offering topics of contemporary importance.’ – John T. Friedman, Roosevelt Academy, Utrecht University

"This is a resource I am excited to offer my students. Eller includes numerous personal experiences and each is presented in a way that anthropology majors and non-anthropology majors can understand. At the same time he challenges the reader to understand the complexities of other world views. This text will enhance the learning experience for students of diverse backgrounds." - Jason T. Younker, Rochester Institute for Technology 

"Very accessible to students, and a very good textbook. There is a lot of attention to clarifying issues and concepts. The section ‘We all live anthropological lives’ is a unique and good addition." – Vance Geiger, University of Central Florida

A student writes: " I have enjoyed the accessibility and thorough exploration of the anthropological perspectives and concepts. It has given myself and many others a unique understanding of various cultures and societies, specifically revolving around the effects of colonialism. I believe the last chapters make it possible to understand society and culture in the past, the present, and how this will change in the future."
