9780131828926: Biological Anthropology: The Natural History of Humankind

For undergraduate introductory physical anthropology, biological anthropology or human origins courses.

 

The only book that integrates the foundations and the most current innovations in the field from the ground up.

 

Over the past twenty years, this field has rapidly evolved from the study of physical anthropology into biological anthropology, incorporating the evolutionary biology of humankind based on information from the fossil record and the human skeleton, genetics of individuals and of populations, our primate relatives, human adaptation, and human behavior .  Stanford combines the most up-to-date, comprehensive coverage of the foundations of the field with the modern innovations and discoveries.

 

Praised by students!

 

"I am an Information Technology and Science major at the Pennsylvania State College. I am taking a introductory course in Anthropology and use your textbook by Stanford. I wanted to thank you for an excellent introductory textbook. As I study for my final today I am amazed at how easy it is to read and how it keeps my attention with stories and interesting facts. Unlike my other introductory texts, it does not assume a prior knowledge of the material or grammar associated with the subject. My final exam is still difficult and covers 8 chapters in the book, but it has been a pleasure studying with your book unlike other texts I have had to read. Thank you again for a great book!"
