With a complete documentary film, ethnography, and multi-media interactive study guide contained in one package, this immersive ebook is anthropology for the 21st century. It provides students and educators with an innovative and updated way to explore key topics in psychological anthropology through the story of Kereta, a Balinese man who believes he lives in two worlds, the everyday world and the world of the spirits. His case raises fascinating questions about culture, personal experience, mental illness, and trauma.
Ideal for use in college-level survey and upper-division anthropology courses, the ebook offers multiple educational features including biographical and cultural information, theoretical investigations, glossary, review quizzes, essay prompts, group discussion questions, and more. Its media-rich format will engage students with over one hundred still photographs, video extras, a complete original soundtrack and behind-the-scenes glimpses into fieldwork and ethnographic filmmaking.
What's New in Version 1.7
Problems, Mac OS 10.10.5
I love the content of this book, but I have experienced significant problems trying to view it on my 2015 Macbook Pro running OS X Yosemite (10.10.5). When I click on a pop-up content icon (Field Notes, Production Notes, Video Extras, etc.) it just shows a black screen. The pop-up content shows properly when viewed on my iPhone, but the text is so small I can barely read it.
