This book presents a set of key papers for those who may have forgotten them as well as for those who, entering the field today, may never have been exposed to these seminal works in Physical Anthropology. It then reaches beyond history to tell the story of the practice of the field, showing—through current research and field work—how the framework has been articulated and expanded over the years.
