I am looking for a good, current ethnographic treatment of some culture,
subculture or aspect of life in the U.S. suitable for an intro to
cultural anthro course. In the past, I've used "Number Our Days," which
is an engaging study of an American Jewish community center in
California, but I'm getting tired of it and haven't come across another
book I like as well. Something on Asian Americans, African American
culture or a social problem/social issue (treated ethnographically) would
be especially welcome. Any suggestions?
