Next semester, I will be teaching for the second time a new course on "The Uses
of Anthropology." This course is designed for lower division students who are
interested in anthropology but, (1) don't know what is involved in becoming an
anthropologist and (2) don't know whether they can earn a living at it.

I am looking for recommendations of suitable readings. In its first outing
xeroxed a reader with selections from Anthropology Newsletter, Practicing
Anthropology, NAPA publications, and the like. I wish there were up to date
replacements for the Frantz's old "Student Anthropologists Handbook" and that
other book on book - was it by Fried? - that went into how to choose a graduate
school, what graduate training is like,and so forth. I am aware of the
Podolefsky/Brown reader which I use in my intro class, but it is not quite what
I have in mind for this one.

I will appreciate any and all suggestions.
