Book Description

19 April 2008 0495509396 978-0495509394 7
Concise, well-balanced, and comprehensive, ESSENTIALS OF PHYSICAL ANTHROPOLOGY, Seventh Edition introduces you to physical anthropology with the goal of helping you understand the big picture of human evolution. Supported by vibrant visuals that include abundant illustrations, photographs, and photo-enhanced maps, the text focuses on human evolution and biology to help you master basic biological principles of physical anthropology so you'll be able to better understand human origins and our place in the biological world. Offering balanced coverage of the topic areas you'll cover in class (heredity and evolution, primates, hominid evolution, and contemporary human evolution) this edition emphasizes the chronology of fossil finds instead of just describing the fossils and the sites where they were found. The authors also interpret each fossil within the framework of the story of human evolution. New features like "Why It Matters" further emphasize the fossils' evolutionary significance, and often even propose the relevance of chapter materials to our everyday lives. The seventh edition provides thorough coverage of cutting-edge advances in molecular biology and expanded coverage of population biology and human variation. It also includes powerful learning tools, including a robust text website. Altogether, ESSENTIALS OF PHYSICAL ANTHROPOLOGY, Seventh Edition, integrates up-to-date coverage of the latest finds and relevant technologies in a format and writing style designed to help all students master the material.

Product Description


?The graphics are superior to anything I have seen in other text books, particularly the use of full color. The use of the visual summaries and reviews is key to understanding this material. The figures and the tables are very illustrative of the points in the text and will definitely help those students that are primarily visual learners.?

I used this book for my physical anthropology class last semester and it is really great! It's nice and short and packed with so much information. I actually wish I hadnt sold the book back after the semester was over because it was so great.

If you find this book on amazon.com, and you need it for school, BUY IT!!! The textbook is expensive otherwise. Even if you aren't looking for this text for school purposes, it is full of interesting information and any reader will find its contents stimulating and useful.
