ANTH 212 (Gender, Sex, and Culture) Course Guide: Finding Books
This guide is intended for students registered in ANTH 212 taught by Larry van der Est.
Books can be great sources for your research. They:
Provide broad overviews of a topic
Put your topic in context with other issues
Discuss big ideas or issues
Reading from books can make it easier for you to understand academic articles on the topic.
Do I need to read a whole book?
No, not usually. Just read what is useful to your research. You can start by reading the introduction of a book and any relevant chapters.
