There is an excellent new reader from Waveland that I picked up at the
AAA meetings. Its called "The Other Fifty Percent" edited by Mari Womack
and Judith Marti. Well chosen articles - both the latest and some
classics. Accessible for undergrads, lots of ethnographic diversity. Nice
intruduction and even a teacher's guide. Cheap too. I would use this if
teaching a gender class.
