•Complete and up-to-date coverage that includes the latest finds and highly current and original source citations throughout.
•Insightful analysis of the key questions in both these fields help students grasp their implications, consider the evidence and arrive at their own conclusions.
•Presents biological anthropology and archaeology/prehistory as distinct areas , respecting the different methods and content of each while summarizing the culture and biology of each chapter's time period.
•“Highlight” boxes in each chapter show the relevance of current issues in bioanthropology and archaeology to today's world and provide applications of the key principles in each chapter.
•Takes a “lumper” approach which allows for only as many species and names that students need to understand the material, allowing students to focus on the key information and avoid being overwhelmed by the technical nature of the subject matter.
• A concluding chapter summarizes the “stages” of human evolution and discusses the nature of “cultural evolution” versus biological evolution, giving pros and cons for equating the terms.
•Recipient of AAA's Outstanding Teaching Award in 1999, Pat Rice is the immediate past president of the General Anthropology Division of AAA and co-director of the Institute for Teaching Anthropology.
