This concise introduction to social and cultural anthropology has become a modern classic, revealing the rich global variation in social life and culture. The text provides a clear overview of anthropology, focusing on central topics such as kinship, ethnicity, ritual and political systems, offering a wealth of examples that demonstrate the enormous scope of anthropology and the importance of a comparative perspective. Unlike other texts on the subject, Small Places, Large Issues incorporates the anthropology of complex modern societies. Using reviews of key monographs to illustrate his argument, Eriksen´s lucid and accessible text remains an established introductory text in anthropology. This new edition is updated throughout and increases the emphasis on the interdependence of human worlds. There is a new discussion of the new influence cultural studies and natural science on anthropology. Effortless bridging the perceived gap between ´´classic´´ and ´´contemporary´´ anthropology, Small Places, Large Issues is as essential to anthropology undergraduates as ever.
WHAT´S CHALLENGING YOUR LEADERSHIP? THE BIBLE HAS AN ANSWER! If you´re trying to influence even one person, you are a leader. And that means you´re facing challenges. The more you lead, the greater the number of challenges you face. How do you solve them? Dr. John C. Maxwell has been exploring these issues and helping leaders with them for decades. Where did Maxwell, recently named the #1 leadership and management expert in the world by Inc. magazine, gain such insight into leadership? From the Bible! John asserts that the Bible is the greatest leadership book that has ever been written. In this study, John addresses twenty-one of the most common issues leaders face. Starting with internal issues such as identity, purpose, pride, and self-leadership, and moving on to others such as criticism, change, diversity, teamwork and recruiting, John shows how leaders in the Bible addressed these issues with boldness and clarity, or, conversely, how they failed to lead. Either way, the lessons are clear. You can improve your leadership for not only your own sake, but also for that of your team and those you serve. In this twenty-one lesson study, John guides you through Scriptures that reveal the challenges leaders face and the solutions available to them. Each lesson includes: THE ISSUE DEFINED: a brief description and introduction to the Issue CASE STUDIES: THREE BIBLICAL STUDIES: including leaders such as Joseph, Moses, Ruth, David, Nehemiah, Peter, Titus, and Jesus-that reveal and illustrate the Issue STUDY QUESTIONS: reflection and application questions to help you dig into the stories of the men and women in Scripture and learn from them LEADERSHIP INSIGHT AND REFLECTION: questions to help you assess and improve your own leadership skills TAKING ACTION: practical takeaways and direction to help you incorporate each lesson into your daily life GROUP DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: questions to help you learn and process the Bible study material with other like-minded people who want to grow in leadership Start with the issues where you most need help, complete the entire study as a course in problem solving, or meet with your team, using it as their next training in leadership development. 21 Leadership Issues in the Bible can help you become a better leader in any area of your life as you seek to influence others for Christ.

A game-changing approach to management Too often discussions of management practice focus exclusively on managing people and organizational issues. Rarely, however, do they incorporate a discussion about technology or address all three dimensions in a balanced way. When they do, the result is game changing. In our hypercompetitive environment, those managers who are outstanding at being plugged into their people, technology, and organizational processes simultaneously excel at coming up with effective business solutions. The Plugged-In Manager makes the case that being plugged-in - the ability to see choices across each of an organization´s dimensions of people, technology, and organizational processes and then to mix them together into new and powerful organizational strategies, structures, and practices - may be the most important capability a manager can develop to succeed in the 21st century. Step by step Griffith shows you how to acquire this ability.Shows what it takes for business managers to succeed as technology and organizations become more and more complexProfiles exceptional leaders and organizations who are plugged-in, such as Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos.comOffers a fresh look at management issues Filled with compelling case studies and drawing on first-hand interviews, The Plugged-In Manager highlights this often neglected managerial capability and the costs of only focusing on one dimension rather than all three.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1.
