Encompassing both mainland and insular countries, these engaging essays describe personhood and identity; family and household organization; nation-states; religion; popular culture and the arts; the legacies of war and recovery; globalization; and the environment. Throughout, the focus is on the daily lives and experiences of ordinary people. Most of the essays are original to this volume, while a few are widely taught classics. All were chosen for their timeliness and interest, and are ideally suited for the classroom.
