In both he revealed the pervasive influence of Franz Boas , his teacher at Columbia University. Culture was the inclusive concept for him, comprehending the behavioral and the ideational, the group and the individual.
Contemporary anthropology has developed a consistent interest in the study of modes of circulation of people, objects and ideas associated with current cultural globalization. This interest is usually presented as a new development in anthropological theory and its possible predecessors, such as diffusionism and acculturation theory, dismissed as irrelevant. Focusing on the works of Melville Herskovits and Roger Bastide, this article argues for a less biased imaged of acculturation theory and stresses the ways in which some of its achievements can inspire current approaches to cultural globalization. This interest is expressed in the recent development of the anthropology of globalization as an important sub-disciplinary field. But it is also reflected in a renewed interest in processes of creolization, hybridization and syncretism, which are an important part of globalization.

А ну-ка пропусти меня, Грег, - сказала. - Мне нужно в туалет. Хейл ухмыльнулся, но, подождав еще минуту, отошел в сторону.
Все это выглядит довольно странно. - Думаешь, надо вернуть им отчет. Она посмотрела на него недовольно. В том, что касалось Мидж Милкен, существовали две вещи, которые никому не позволялось ставить под сомнение. Первой из них были предоставляемые ею данные.
