Selected Perspectives: an Open Introduction to Cultural Anthropology

This version of the open textbook, Perspectives: An Open Invitation to Cultural Anthropology was created by Nadine Fernandez and Deborah Amory to support the teaching of the online course, Introduction to Cultural Anthropology, at SUNY Empire State College in the spring of 2018. We made only minor modifications to the chapters we selected from the original Perspectives textbook to be included here, and so owe a debt of gratitude to the original authors, who are still credited for their work. We would also like to thank the Joyce S. McKnight OER Academy at Empire State College for providing support for this work, as well as SUNY OER Services for their sound advice and amazing technological support. We look forward to the day when all educational resources are open and free to the public.
