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.”

Highlights of the Ninth Edition

  • Updates the taxonomic scheme for the human lineage, bringing the text into agreement with current paleoanthropological usage. Australopiths are assigned to the subtribe Australopithecina, species of the genus Homo are placed in the subtribe Hominina, and the two subtribes are combined to form the tribe Hominini. Great apes and hominins now are combined in the family Hominidae.
  • Provides an absolutely up-to-date survey of the hominin fossil species including descriptions of the oldest members of the tribe―Sahelanthropus, Orrorin, and Ardipithecus kadabba (Chapters 6 & 7)―as well as the recently discovered dwarfed species from Indonesia, Homo floresiensis (expanded postscript in Chapter 15).
  • Expands the fossil and behavioral descriptions of Homo heidelbergensis and identifies this species as the first hominin type to show the “hunting lifestyle.” Updates speculations about societal changes that may have accompanied the beginning of the hunting way of life (Chapter 12).
  • Describes the latest studies of the neural regions and connections responsible for human speech and language (Chapter 13).
  • Provides in-text citations for all source materials and a full bibliography―features that allow for in-depth study. Over 30% of the references are from 2000 or later.
