Overview

Human Evolution and Culture / Edition 7

A Brief Empirical Introduction to the Four Fields of Anthropology

Human Evolution and Culture presents the highlights of the popular Anthropology, 13th edition by the same author team. It provides students with an empirical introduction to the four fields of anthropology, and helps them understand humans in all their variety - and why such variety exists.

Its four sections introduce students to 1) anthropology, 2) the biological and cultural evolution of humans, 3) cultural variation, and 4) how anthropology can be applied beyond academia.

This new 7th edition places an increased emphasis on immigration, migration and globalization. Additionally, the size of the book (19 chapters) makes it useful for quarter courses, as well as for courses that encourage a lot of supplemental reading.
