Culture is a set of learned behaviours, beliefs, attitudes, values and ideals that characterize a particular society or population. Simply speaking, culture is the way a particular group of people acts and behaves. The discipline of Sociocultural Anthropology describes why people differ in their ways of acting and thinking. To help develop this understanding, all aspects of culture, ranging from cultural development, change over time and customs ranging from birth rituals to burial customs are dealt with in this volume. The 'social anthropological' tradition of old world and 'cultural anthropological' tradition originating in North America are combined in this book reflecting the growing similarity of both worlds.
