Description

Biological Anthropology: The Natural History of

Humankind combines comprehensive coverage of the

foundations of the field with modern innovations and

discoveries, helping students understand, and get excited

about, the discipline. Because the authors conduct

research in three of the main areas of biological

anthropology–the human fossil record (Susan Antón),

primate behavior and ecology (Craig Stanford), and

human biology and the brain (John Allen)–they offer a

specialist approach that engages students and gives them

everything they need to master the subject. The Fourth

Edition continues to present traditional physical

anthropology within a modern Darwinian framework,

and includes coverage of contemporary discoveries to

highlight the ever-increasing body of knowledge in

biological anthropology.
