Culture, once a center-stage concept in anthropology, is now being discussed by talk show personalities and journalists and included in a wide range of academic disciplines. In view of the myriad uses and abuses of the concept, The Relevance of Culture sets the record straight through a careful survey of the development of the concept of culture, and the arguments and continuing relevance of it to theoretical discussions.

The authors illustrate its roles in such diverse areas as risk and technology, nursing and health care, evolution, criminology, information, economy, geography, and even the understanding of suicide. Noted scholars apply their wit and wisdom to illustrate and analyze the role of culture, creating a definitive picture for both scholars and beginning students of cultural anthropology and related social sciences.
