This supplementary reader offers both historical and contemporary articles that demonstrate the nature and significant contributions of biological anthropology. With nearly one-third of the selections focusing on living populations, the 42 readings cover the entire range of bioanthropological studies: evolution, nonhuman primates, human paleontology, and modern human groups. Eleven of the articles are new to this edition, including Adam Summer's "Born to Run," Kate Wong's "The Littlest Human," James J. McKenna's "Babies Need Their Mothers Beside Them," and Michael Balter's "Are Humans Still Evolving?"
