Canadian Perspectives on Culture and Society
This is the first introductory text that focuses on social anthropological research using Canadian examples and perspectives. In this groundbreaking new book, Edward Hedican provides undergraduate students with a solid background on the theoretical and applied aspects of anthropology, while exploring the rich history of the discipline in a Canadian context.
In ten concise chapters, readers are introduced to the basic conceptual building blocks of introductory anthropology in a refreshingly succinct and engaging way. With a strong focus on Canadian theory, this book includes discussion of evolutionism, feminist anthropology, marriage and the family, and political economy.

"It will be a very resourceful tool for those who teach and learn about cultural anthropology in Canada […] The book is not duplicating any existing material, [and] I think it will make a significant contribution to Canadian anthropology."— Maria Cristina Manzano-Munguia, Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla
