Review quote Lassiter offers Invitation to Anthropology to a hip-hop generation that already lives in a globalized world and is forced to grapple with complicated and fractured notions of race and culture everyday.

Gone are the dated assumptions of race, language, culture, yet he maintains the best that anthropology has to offer in terms of the four-field approach, a commitment to the beauty of human diversity. Lassiter extends the rich tradition of public anthropology.

It is fresh, exciting, relevant and extremely useful to students and faculty alike. Baker, Duke University show more.
