The most comprehensive and readable survey text available for courses on human evolution.
One reviewer says, “An impressive revision that updates the content, improves the graphics, adds significant new material, and addresses contemporary concerns and the relationship of the text's subject matter to ongoing issues in everyday life. Of all editions of the text, and I have used five previous editions, the eighth is clearly a superior, comprehensive introduction to physical anthropology. It retains, and incrementally improves, the best features of earlier versions. A whole new set of theoretical perspectives and timelines illuminate the latest fossil finds. The links to the WWW sites are a terrific pedagogical addition to help students keep current, in real time, as new finds are uncovered or restudies are reported. Overall, a superb collaboration, which should be welcomed by those teaching undergraduate Physical Anthropology courses.”
