Fresh, exciting, relevant and extremely useful to students and faculty alike. Praise from Previous Edition –Lee D. Baker, Duke University” Lassiter’s introduction to anthropology promises to keep deep and strong contact with real currents of today’s life and to pull students into those currents. Praise from Previous Edition –James L. Peacock III, author, The Anthropological Lens; University of North Carolina; former president, American Anthropological Association; and chair, Committee formulating the AAA code of ethics” Seldom have students announced in class that they enjoyed reading a text book, yet my students did this very thing, raving about Invitation to Anthropology s ease of use, small, size, and, more importantly, how clearly it presented the concepts of cultural anthropology.
His evangelical message about the relevance of anthropology is timely and engaging. Moving beyond the popular stereotypes of Indiana-Jones-ish anthropologists documenting fertility dances among remote tribes, Lassiter illustrates the varied and valuable applications of the anthropological perspective for real world problems on the local, regional and global scale.
Praise from Previous Edition –Celeste Ray, University of the South” The writing is lively, the illustrations and examples are engaging and relevant. I would absolutely recommend it to colleagues. Praise from Previous Edition –Colleen E. Boyd, Ball State University” I was looking for a relatively small-sized text, so that other readings could be assigned; one that is not organized by ‘band, tribe, chiefdom, state’ and ‘hunters and gatherers, horticulturalists, etc.
I found all three in Invitation to Anthropology.

This was one of my favorites. Each chapter is on a different topic. Lassiter seamlessly uses vocab words bolded in the text throughout his chapters, so that they soon become a part of your vocabulary. The stories are interesting, and it feels more like a story than a ijvitation text.
A very well written intro to anthropology. Five stars were given for Required reading antnropology class. Five stars were given for the condition and shipping.
As for the actual book, if it wasn’t for a class, I would skip it. As an anthropology text book it is overly wordy and you have to sift through for the information. This is easy to understand. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Good price, I learned a lot from this invitatkon though it was very repetitive so I felt the book could have been shorter.
