about this item

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 how we can recognize the common cultural thread running through diverse American phenomena—from ****** addiction and Big Business’s efforts to shape the identities of children, to Civil War reenactments and the popularity of burlesque in the Midwest. The volume asks such questions as, “What draws people to Burning Man events?” “How can ‘home’ be considered a political term?” In addition, this second edition

  • includes chapters written especially for this volume on striptease, Burning Man, The Big Bang Theory TV show, and Groundhog Phil;
  • is written throughout with verve and quirky humor, offering “Questions for discussion” after every article that make the book perfect for undergraduate classes in anthropology and American studies;
  • draws together twenty-two scholars with expertise in anthropological ideas about culture to examine what it means to be American.
