For more than four decades, editor-anthropologist George Spindler has brought together articles from leading scholars in the field of anthropology and education. This latest edition, aimed at sensitizing readers to the subtle permutations of culture in the classroom, represents a diversity of interests and approaches that define and further develop topics of central interest to anthropology and education. The chosen selections are arranged around several important themes: approaches to the study of schools, education and cultural process in the United States, cultural process in education viewed transculturally, transcultural comparisons, and teaching culture. The editor, widely recognized as the father of the field of educational anthropology, has included helpful previews to each section that point out significant ideas and trace their development.
