Descripción

Anthropologists travel back in time and across the globe to understand human culture—but, surprise, there is culture right here in the United States. This second edition of the best-selling textbook and anthology, Reflecting on America, again focuses on American “mainstream” culture—from heroin addiction and Big Business’s efforts to shape the identities of children to Civil War reenactments and the popularity of striptease burlesques in the Midwest. The volume asks, What draws people to Burning Man events? How can “home” be considered a political term? This second edition -includes chapters written especially for this volume on buttons, Burning Man, the Big Bang Theory (TV show), Groundhog Phil, and culture and ethnicity in the U.S.; -is written throughout with verve and quirky humor, and offers “Questions for discussion” after every article, making it perfect for undergraduate classes in anthropology and American studies; -draws together diverse scholars with expertise in anthropological ideas about culture to examine what it means to be American.
